Venue Information

The symposium will be held on The University of Queensland Gatton Campus, located in the Lockyer Valley, around 90 kilometres west of Brisbane, the Queensland State Capital City.

Lecture theatre, workshop and dining venues are all located centrally on the campus within easy walking distance of each other.

Parking is free on campus all year round, and parking venues are highlighted on the campus map.
