Accommodation 2024

Disclaimer: Symposium delegates need to make their own accommodation bookings, preferably directly with the accommodation providers, using promo codes where available. MAANZ cannot be held responsible for bookings made by delegates. Geelong has a wide variety of accommodation options and the following are suggestions only.

Choosing Your Geelong Accommodation
The Novotel on Geelong’s picturesque Corio Bay waterfront will be the Symposium hub. It is within close walking distance of the other venues, and the central Geelong arts and restaurant district. If you are without a car, you can easily walk everywhere you need to from the Novotel. Please note that there is very little unrestricted parking in central Geelong, so if you have a car with you we recommend that you ensure you have parking included by your accommodation provider. Alternatively, or if you are driving from out of town, you can leave your car each day at Eastern Park, a 15 minute walk from the Novotel.
