Attendance at this half-day workshop is included in the day 1 registration.


The Ship Inn – Located next to the Brisbane River in the vibrant South Bank precinct and surrounded by beautiful purple bougainvillea, The Ship Inn is a special piece of local history. This iconic South Bank Hotel was constructed in 1864 and was once a rowdy sailors drinking den now transformed into a civilised gastro pub and quaint conference venue with views to die for. The Ship Inn is conveniently located within easy walking distance of all conference tour venues.
