Conference attendees are encouraged to use low-carbon transport options to get to Canberra. Authentic offsets for travel can be purchased via https://www.greenfleet.com.au/. With the help of local volunteers, we’ll do our best to ensure that you can be assisted in getting around Canberra once you get there.
Public transport information
Several bus routes pass within easy walk of the centre – even at 9.30-10 pm on Saturday night it is possible to catch buses to Civic and to Kingston. Similarly, there are buses on Saturday and Sunday morning. Key buses include the R2, R5 and R6.
Trip planners include https://www.transport.act.gov.au/getting-around/journey-planner and Google Maps.
For those travelling by car
There is a large overflow car park on the grounds of the ACC&C. The car park is accessed by a boom gate which is open at the weekend. Volunteers will be directing drivers to the most efficient use of the overflow parking space as it is easy to block access to others inadvertently.
Robert Dawlings is arranging assistance with transport to Canberra. During the Conference, please let your needs for a lift be known at the registration table.
