Accommodation

The UTD2 conference will be part of Arboriculture Australia’s 2016 conference held at the conference facilities of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), an iconic sporting stadium opposite the beautiful Fitzroy Park.

Subsidised accommodation has been arranged at the Mantra on Jolimont, within two minutes of the Melbourne Cricket Ground conference facilities.

All conference attendees will be able to take advantage of the special accommodation rates that Arboriculture Australia has arranged – $199 AUD per night (Queen or Twin) including a full breakfast for one person. This is equivalent to approx. $140 USD or €125 EUR.

If you share the room with a partner, friend or colleague – you only need to pay for one additional breakfast at a cost of $18 AUD.

For those of you on a tight “student” budget, there are near by alternative, many of which can be found at the official accommodation site for Visit Victoria

However, when thinking about which part of the city you want to book accommodation also consider how you will travel to and from the conference. There is an excellent tram network and train system in Melbourne, you just need a Myki card to travel. These trams have kept going since they were established over 100 years ago and they criss-cross the suburbs.
