CONFERENCE VENUE

University of Melbourne, Parkville Campus

Parkville is the University of Melbourne’s primary and historical campus, featuring buildings from the Victorian age next to modern facilities. Originally established in a large area in the Parkville suburb, the campus has expanded well beyond its boundaries, with many of its newly acquired buildings located in the nearby Carlton suburb. The campus is located on the edge of the Melbourne city, just a 10-minute tram ride or a 20-minute walk away from the city centre. Cafés and restaurants of cosmopolitan Lygon Street, as well as the picturesque Queen Victoria Market, are nearby attractions.

Details of the actual venue rooms will be provided shortly.
