# There is plenty of shade in and around the univerisity, including the colleges and river foreshore.

# Keep hydrated with water, we will have plenty available for you to fill your water bottles.

# Wear SPF sun rated clothing if you are sensitive to the sun.
+
# There will be suncream available during the conference at the rego desk.
