Travel Insurance

The conference managers recommend delegates purchase travel insurance including cover for non-refundable registration fees. The conference managers do not take any responsibility for attendees failing to insure. Delegates must be appropriately covered for travel insurance, including but not limited to repatriation and medical expenses, as well as public liability insurance.

Visas

All travellers to Australia, other than Australian and New Zealand citizens, are legally required to hold a valid visa or electronic travel authority (ETA). It is your responsibility to ensure documentation is correct and completed before you commence your journey. Delegates must register for the event before lodging their visa/ETA application. Following your registration and payment, you will receive an acknowledgement letter. We recommend you apply for your visa/ETA at least 10 weeks before you travel (earlier in some cases). For more information, contact your nearest Australian Embassy/Consulate or view the Australian Department of Home Affairs website

Sydney Airport

Taxis

Taxis have their own taxi ranks or can be hailed from the street. Each terminal has its own sheltered taxi rank with supervisors on hand in peak hours to ensure a smooth flow of taxis for travellers. Expect a return taxi fare of around AUD50 for a taxi ride between the CBD and Sydney Airport.

Public Transport

Most of Sydney’s main attractions are within walking distance to the conference venue, however public transport is easily accessible and affordable. The ferry is also accessible, and will take you to Circular Quay and to other locations along the harbour.
