- Everyone entering Australia who is not a citizen of Australia or New Zealand will need a visa of some type. Depending on nationality, this is either an eVisitor (link), ETA (link) or a traditional visa. Please contact the organisers if you need assistance with a visa.
- The Sunshine Coast is served by two airports, Brisbane (BNE) and Sunshine Coast (MCY).
- Brisbane Airport (98km from venue) is an international airport. A direct flight from an overseas airport to BNE is recommended over a connection to a domestic flight to MCY. From Brisbane airport, a shuttle can be caught to Mooloolaba for $45 one way.
- Sunshine Coast Airport (13km from venue) is a domestic only airport. It is served by Virgin Australia (VA, full service), Qantas (QF, full service) and Jetstar (JQ, budget airline). Beware flights that connect via SYD onto a JQ flight (which may have a QF flight number) as you will be abandoned at the wrong terminal upon arrival in SYD. From Sunshine Coast airport, a taxi can be caught to Mooloolaba. Both traditional and app-based taxis operate in Australia.
- We don't recommend going to the Gold Coast Airport (OOL) for this conference as it is more than two hour drive away.
- For travel to/from Brisbane, options include car, regular public transport (train to Landsborough station and change to 615 bus) or long distance bus (Premier Motor Services or Greyhound).
