Moreton Bay Research Station (MBRS)
21 - 23 February 2018
Accommodation is available onsite at MBRS for all conference delegates. Bunk rooms are available that will contain up to four delegates at the cost of $30 each per night which is payable when you register. Options are available upon registering for groups to request rooms together.
A select few two person bunk rooms are also available but the exact number will not be known until closer to the conference. Requests for a two person room can be made when registering with preference given to any delegates that have greater need of one.
Apart from the conference dinner, all meals are provided at MBRS as part of your registration (Wed – Fri).
