Hi everyone!

We are drawing closer and closer to conference so I am sure you are all clawing for details. To make sure everyone is on the same page I will fill you all in on what is happening in terms of accommodation for people who have paid full registration.

The accommodation is 6-12th of July inclusive at:

Discovery Melbourne
167 Franklin Street, Melbourne, Vic, 300
(03) 9329 7525

Discovery Melbourne is located in the Melbourne CBD  near Melbourne Central Station.

The hostel has a variety of facilities from its bar, ‘Velvet Underground Bar’, a cafe, internet kiosk & wifi available, kitchen, laundry, cinema, bbq facilities and a rooftop relaxation area.

Check-in isn’t until after 2:00pm which means that you will have to drop your luggage off before registration and return to the hostel later in the day to check-in. Here is the first day schedule to help you people figure out plans:


Morning: Delegates fly in to Melbourne at varied times, make their way to the hostel, Discovery Melbourne and drop off their luggage in the hostel’s storage before heading to registration at RMIT University.

11am-1pm: Registration

1pm-2pm: Lunch

2pm-4pm: Conference Floor

After conference floor delegates who do not belong to/wish to attend caucuses and/or grievance training can head back to Discovery Melbourne and check in to their rooms. Delegates attending caucuses or Grievance Officer training can head back after their commitments have finished.

4pm- 6pm: Caucuses

6pm-7pm: Grievance Officer training

7pm- onwards: Meet & Greet @ Discovery Bar
