Group bookings have been made at the RACV Club (the conference venue), Sebel Melbourne and the Quality Batman’s Hill on Collins.

To obtain the special conference rates, accommodation bookings must be made through Convention Associates by entering your requirements on the registration form (which will be available on this website in February 2006). Rates shown are per room (not per person) per night and include GST.

Accommodation Deposits

There is a deposit of one night’s room rate per room. If sharing, the deposit should be paid by one person only; please do not split the deposit and do not send more than the required deposit. The balance of your accommodation account should be paid directly to the hotel upon departure. Please note that the deposit does not include GST. That will be included when you pay the final account at the hotel.
