Other Accommodation

There is plenty of other accommodation available within close walking distance of the symposium venue. Some places you may want to try that are directly on the Hobart waterfront include

A little further away but still in walking distance you may want to try:


Now is the time to start planning your trip if you want to do some add on travel.  That time in Tasmania is a key time to visit the Central Highlands and hopefully see some snow.  Here are some potential “themed” tours.

First for the bushwalkers amongst you – by then the Three Capes Track will be open.  It has been hailed as the new “must do” along with Maria Island Walk, Bay of Fires Walk, Wineglass Bay at Freycinet National Park and the Overland Track that goes from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair.


And for the more gourmet of you; let’s try a Food and Wine Tour (maybe both?).

The East Coast will deliver oysters, olives, and walnuts – a number of great vineyards, Freycinet Vineyard, Milton Vineyard, and Springvale to name a few!

Bruny Island will give you fine food often featured on the Gourmet Farmer, including the famous Bruny Island Cheese.  The Tamar Valley in the North is famous for it’s wine again, apples, yoghurt and is a tour in its own right.
