Knowledge hubs

Australia’s leadership in food and agribusiness, financial services, resources and energy, health and science and infrastructure, makes it a natural choice for many associations.


Serviced by airlines from all continents, getting to Australia is easy for delegates across the world. Travellers from the UK can take a non-stop direct flight from London (Heathrow) to Perth or depart from a number of airports including London (Heathrow and Gatwick), Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow, via several hubs in the Middle East and Asia.

Australia has international airports in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Perth, Gold Coast, Adelaide and Canberra. Other domestic airports include Hobart, Hamilton Island and Uluru.


Australia’s temperate climate makes it an ideal destination year round. The northern states typically experience tropical climates, while the southern states experience cooler winters. As one of the driest continents, some destinations boast more than 300 days of sunshine annually. Seasons are the opposite of those in the Northern Hemisphere.

Unique experiences

Having the world’s largest coral reef system an easy domestic flight away is one of the reasons Australia is on everyone’s wish list. Combine this with Australia’s unique animals and how easy it is to get up close and personal with them, even in capital cities, and you’ve got your social media posts sorted during your stay here.
