  3. Wear SPF sun rated clothing if you are sensitive to the sun.

Safety message:
Many people are likely to drive to Perth, whether it's driving all the way from home, or hiring a vehicle from the airport. Of particular note to international Speakers and Delegates, please be aware that Australia has some of the toughest drink driving laws in the world. The blood alcohol limit is 0.05, and it is strictly enforced. As an organising team, we're working extra hard to put on extra buses to/from all official events to prevent the need to drive. Don't be a bloody idiot: If you drink, don't drive.
And if you're staying in Perth and not driving, or you're a local, have fun but stay safe - Friends don't let friends walk home drunk.

Airport shuttle transport

We have organized shuttle buses to run from the airport to the accommodation & from the accommodation to the airport going home.

  • A taxi should cost less than $53 to get to the conference accommodation.
