The Saturday lecture series will held in the BAE Systems Theatre within the Australian War Memorial, commencing at 8.30am (registration from 8am). The War Memorial is located on Treloar Crescent in Campbell, minutes from the CBD. There is unrestricted parking at the memorial on weekends and it is also serviced by a regular bus route from the city (Route 910). The Saturday program will conclude at 4.55pm with the Last Post Ceremony at the Pool of Reflection.

Important information for entry to the memorial on Saturday morning
The main doors of the memorial do not open until 10am so you must use the side access door into the Reg Saunders Gallery (also referred to as the Western Courtyard entrance). Please click here to view a map of the memorial side entrance. You will not be able to access the conference through the main door of the memorial before 10am. A security guard will be stationed at the side entrance to the conference and may ask to conduct a bag inspection. Your co-operation is appreciated.


Sunday workshops      
The two Sunday morning workshops will be held at Calvary Hospital, located on Mary Potter Circuit in Bruce.
