The Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia Conference 2019 will be held in Brisbane, Australia. Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, often referred to as the Sunshine State. The city is built around the Brisbane River that winds its way down from the mountains to Moreton Bay, the playground of whales, dugongs and dolphins. The Moreton Bay Marine Park offers visitors the potential for diving on coral reefs, recreational fishing, or just taking in the views. One hour’s drive south is the Gold Coast and the famous Surfers Paradise. The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s most frequented tourist resort areas with miles of golden beaches, as well as many other attractions.
In one neat package Brisbane embodies the great Australian destination. From the world-class infrastructure to the excellent transport systems to the global reputation for innovative and emerging industries to the immense options for pre and post touring and partner programs, Brisbane is a destination built for business events. Friendly, engaging, clean and safe, Brisbane is also a destination where people are a priority. This is a city where government and industry work together to support conventions, conferences and exhibitions. That means that across the city, from hotel lobbies to restaurants to retail outlets, your delegates will be welcomed and embraced into the community.
Take a few extra days and bring the family along to see the outback, Great Barrier Reef or lounge on one of the fabulous beaches along the Gold or Sunshine Coasts nearby! For more information on how to discover Brisbane and the beautiful surrounding areas, visit our Discover Brisbane web page.
