Venue & Host City

Luna Park Sydney
Milsons Point, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia 2061
T: +61 2 9033 7676

Luna Park is located at Milsons Point, on the northern shore of Sydney Harbour, at the foot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. With spectacular views of the Harbour, Sydney’s much loved Luna Park is a superbly restored 1930s amusement park. Because we want to welcome the whole family to our conference, we’ve chosen a fun venue close to all the sights that make Sydney so famous. The North Sydney Olympic Pool complex, which has a gym and crèche, is nearby. You can take a water taxi from one side of the Harbour to the other, or around to the Taronga Zoo or the Sea Life Aquarium.  Hundreds of Sydney-siders walk or cycle across the Bridge every day – not to mention those who prefer to take the Bridge Climb. The Bridge’s south-east pylon is accessed via the pedestrian walkway, and you can climb to the top in about 200 steps. 

Take a look at all the exciting things beautiful Sydney has to offer below.


Host City – Sydney

Sydney, Australia’s gateway city and the capital of New South Wales is built around one of the largest, most beautiful harbours in the world and along miles of golden surfing beaches which stretch north and south of the city on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. The beaches and harbour play a major role in the leisure and sporting lives of Sydneysiders – yachting, surfing, sailboarding, swimming, boating, fishing and waterskiing are all popular activities.

Many national parks and protected areas of natural bushland surround the city and the beautiful Blue Mountains are a short journey to the west.

Perhaps the most famous of Sydney’s landmarks is the spectacular Sydney Opera House with its graceful ‘sails’. The Opera House has become Sydney’s cultural centre, offering opera, ballet, drama and film. The historic ‘Rocks’ area, site of the original white settlement, is nearby, and this part of the harbour foreshore is a hub of activity for both local residents and visitors.

Sydney is a vigorous, cosmopolitan city, a major industrial, business and commercial centre and is endlessly fascinating in its variety and its beauty.
