CONFERENCE ACCOMMODATION PROVIDERS
In the words of Slim Dusty “Where the sunshine's so warm in the winter, and there's so many places to see, so just come and soak up the sunshine, in this fair place they named Port Macquarie, where the Hastings flows into the sea”.
Port Macquarie is a beautiful place fortunate to have stunning ocean and river views. Many of the accommodation choices have been made with this in mind and of course their proximity to the Koala Conference venue.
The Koala Hospital has managed to obtain some excellent deals for the duration of the Conference with these accommodation providers. We would ask that you support them and take advantage of their offers.
NB: You must quote “Koala Conference” when you are booking or making enquiries from them.
