Focus Back Home

Some of the super-cheap, special package fares have now been booked out. Your next best option is a 21 day advance purchase fare, available from Dianella Plaza Travel, or your travel agent of choice.

DIANELLA PLAZA TRAVEL has been appointed by the ASCILITE Organising Committee to plan, arrange and handle all bookings and financial matters relating to the travel and accommodation requirements of Conference Delegates. A selection of very attractive travel and accommodation packages have been prepared, and only bookings made with Dianella Plaza Travel will secure these rates. A range of accommodation is available beyond those described here. All flights have been arranged through QANTAS, but travel by another airline can also be booked if required. Both travel and accommodation may be booked separately, and Dianella Plaza Travel can organise any special requirements you may have.

Overseas connections may also be arranged.

Travel insurance is advised and can be arranged through Dianella Plaza Travel.

It should be noted that the Conference will not conclude until 4.30pm on Wednesday 10th. This decision was made deliberately, because there are no late afternoon or early evening flights out of Perth. So you may as well stay over for the Marlino/Reeves workshop on Thursday!
