We advise participants to stay in Melbourne’s CBD (preferably close to Flinders St station, Southern Cross station, or Melbourne Central station) and commute to the conference every day. It is only a 15min train ride to Footscray from the city! Simply catch the Sunbury or Werribee lines from the city to Footscray Station.

Some accommodation options close to public transport in the CBD are:


Punt Hill Flinders Lane

Oaks on Collins

Adina Northbank

Rendezvous Melbourne

Double Tree by Hilton 


King Street Backpackers 

Flinders Backpackers 

Melbourne Connection 

Green House
