Early Arrival

Some international flights arrive in Perth in the very early morning. As check-in is not until 1500 it is possible that your room may not be ready for immediate occupation on your early arrival. Although hotels will do everything possible to accommodate early arrival, if you wish to be guaranteed immediate occupation you can pay an extra day's tariff for the night before you are due to arrive. If you wish to take this precaution, please advise the secretariat on the registration form so that we can notify the hotel that your room is pre-registered.

Late Arrival

Please indicate if you will arrive at your hotel after 1800 hours. Failure to do so might result in your room being released.

Change of Booking

Any change in booking must be made in writing to the congress secretariat and NOT directly to the hotel. Charges will apply to any accommodation changes after 16 August 2009. A fee of AUD$25 per change will apply. Please send your changes in writing to .

Family Accommodation and Child Minding Facilities

The apartments at the TradeWinds Hotel are more spacious than standard hotel accommodation as they have a separate living and kitchen area. Please contact the hotel concierge for baby-sitting services.

Other arrangments

Of course you can always make your own a arrangements (thank heavens for family and friends) or you can try the local 'Fremantle Focus', 'StayWA' or the hotel search 'wotif'.
