Important Accommodation Announcement

Please note that the conference coincides with a major international religious event, World Youth Week. The Pope will be visiting Sydney during the week of the conference. As a result, many hotels are booked out and some hotel rates are very expensive.

Delegates should seek to book their hotel rooms as early as possible.

On the accommodation page we have listed a number of hotels that currently have rooms available. We cannot guarantee that these rooms will remain free for long. We will add to this list as more rooms become available.
