The official conference opening will be held at the Art Gallery on Sunday evening. Drinks and nibbles will be served and delegates will be able to wander through the gallery.
Stamford Grand, Glenelg (Monday Evening)
The Stamford Grand Adelaide is located right on the beachfront in Glenelg and only 20 minutes from the city and 10 minutes from the airport. Surrounded by a myriad of leisure activities, this resort-style hotel is the perfect environment in which to relax. The conference banquet will be held at the Stamford Grand and delegates will be taken to the hotel on historic Adelaide trams.
Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide (Tuesday Evening)
Adelaide Zoo is home to over 3,400 animals and almost 300 species of exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish exhibited in magnificent botanic surroundings now expanded to eight hectares. Adelaide Zoo has the largest display of Australian animals in South Australia and the second largest in Australia. The Zoo is the second oldest zoo in the nation and represents a significant and important part of South Australias heritage and social history. It is unique among Australian zoos as it has retained many original and significant architectural features giving it a style and character all its own. Cocktails and canapes will be held at the Zoo on Tuesday evening and delegates will be able to have guided-tours of the zoo.
