Getting to the Conference

Book your flight into the Adelaide Airport. From the airport, you can either use public transport or taxi to get to the city. If you wish to use public transport, Adelaide Metro offers an express double decker bus service called JetExpress between the airport and the city. Single trip tickets can be purchased from bus drivers. Get off at Stop B2 Currie Street and walk a short distance to the venue. Allow 30 minutes travel time. Fare varies depending on day/time, ranging from $3.50 – $5.40.

A taxi is a convenient way to get to and from the airport. There is a designated taxi rank located at the left of the pedestrian plaza as you walk out of the terminal. Concierges provide a safe environment and allocate taxis to passengers.  The trip will take about 15 minutes and costs around $25. There is a $3 levy added to fares for taxis leaving the airport.

If arriving by car, please view the conference map to find car park locations.
