Pre-Conference Tour

The On Sustainability Conference is pleased to offer the following tour to the Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef

Join other conference delegates and plenary speakers on a 5 hour guided tour of The Great Barrier Reef.

Depart direct from Cairns on a fast, stable catamaran providing a smoother ride and reduced travel time, leaving more of your day to experience the magic of the Great Barrier Reef.

Snorkel in the sheltered coral lagoon, go scuba diving (no experience necessary), or join our Marine Biologist on a Guided Snorkel safari.

Not a confident swimmer? Then, stay dry and view the reef from the semi-submersible reef viewer, glass bottom boat or underwater observatory, or try a Helmet Dive for a scuba-style experience without getting your hair wet.

Conference Dinner - Tjapukai Cultural Park

The Fourteenth International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability is pleased to host the Conference Dinner at Tjapukai Cultural Park.

Located in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland, Tjapukai has been sharing the authentic culture and traditions of the local Djabugay people for the past 28 years, providing employment opportunities for their people and giving the performers immense pride in demonstrating their culture.

From its inception, Tjapukai’s mission has been about giving Australians and international visitors the opportunity to experience authentic Aboriginal culture and interact with Traditional Owners. That mission now includes authentic Torres Strait Islander culture.

Tjapukai is the largest Indigenous employer of any tourism enterprise in Australia with more than two-thirds of the team Indigenous. Tjapukai works in consultation with Traditional Owners and has injected in excess of $35 million into the local Indigenous community through wages, royalties, and the commissioning and purchasing of authentic art and artifacts.

The conference dinner will begin with welcome drinks, canapes, and face painting in the Breezeway. Then, you will be led to the Bundarra Theatre for a Welcome to Country and Dance Performance. A 2-course buffet dinner will follow, with an opportunity to browse the Retail Gallery, before departure at 16:30 (8:30 PM).

Space is limited, so be sure to book early.
