Free Rottnest Island Day Tour

The Conference has arranged a Technical-Social day tour to Western Australia's wonderful Rottnest Island. Traving to the island is fully free of charge for all conference attendees. It is a non-missable tourist attraction for anyone visiting Perth, especially in December. Rottnest Island is a wonderful protected nature reserve, and home to the quokka (a small wallaby-like marsupial), as well as several white-sand beaches and secluded coves and shallow waters.
