Accommodation & Travel


Rooms at the Mandalay resort are now booked out. The organisers have negotiated conference rates at the Peppers Blue on Blue resort (site of the conference dinner) for delegates. There are a limited number of single rooms/apartments available for the night of Friday 21st July, but we have arranged for a block of two- and three-bedroom apartments to be held for conference delegates. If you would like to take advantage of this option, but cannot make your own sharing arrangement, please contact the organisers at posmol2017+accom@gmail.com with the details requested in the apartment booking form and we will arrange for delegates to share an apartment. In this case, you will be invoiced individually for your share of the apartment cost.

Delegates who can make their own sharing arrangements should do so and contact the resort directly at blueonblue.conf@peppers.com.au, or by telephone on +61 (0)7 4758 2415. Please let them know you are from the POSMOL2017 conference when you do so. There are also a number of other accommodation options within Nelly Bay, which may be suitable - these can be found in the usual manner online.
