What to Wear
Conference sessions – smart casual
Melbourne does have a reputation for variable weather and there can be a 20 degrees difference in just one day. It is not uncommon to have four seasons in one day! The best advice is to consider ‘layering’ when visiting Melbourne – choose clothing to suit the range of average temperatures below, but allow for the odd day beyond these averages. Average spring temperatures range from 9 - 20 C.
Melbourne’s trams are legendary! Enjoy a free tram experience, and see the city sights on the ‘City Circle’ trams that run in and around the city. Jump off and on at places of interest. Both Flinders Street train station and Southern Cross train station are within walking distance of the conference venue, with tram stops on Spencer and Clarendon streets that are close to the Conference Venue.
Getting to and from the Airport Melbourne airport is 25km/30-45mins (non-peak hour traffic) from the city. From the airport you can take the Skybus shuttle service to the CBD and city hotels (approximately AUD$15), a yellow taxi (approximately AUD$45), a rental car or a prebooked limousine. From Coach and Rail Terminals If arriving by coach or rail, these terminals are located within the city so a short tram or taxi ride from these will get you to your city accommodation.
