The formal conference program finished at 14:00 on Wednesday 19th of February. We have organized two social activities for participants who wish to join. This is not compulsory and participants can certainly use the opportunity to explore Perth and the surrounding areas by themselves. If you have any questions please let the LOC now.

swan river cruise


Tour Duration: About 3 hours

Information: The Swan River (its Aboriginal Noongar name is the Derbarl Yerrigan) is the liquid heart of Perth, touching many of the City’s neighbourhoods on its way to the Indian Ocean. The river passes through the Swan Valley wine Region, Perth’s Central Business District and affluent suburbs, and the port city of Fremantle, and there are lots of recreational opportunities on the bands and in the water.

We are organising a three-hour Swan River Cruise – from 3pm to 6pm. Participants are welcome to come along with their families/friends if they wish to do so. The cost per person is 89AUD (not covered by registration fee). Drinks and canapés are included in the experience. If you have not registered your interest but would like to come along, please get in touch with the LOC.
