TRAVEL

We are mindful of the carbon footprint associated with conferences, including air travel that will be involved in bringing our community together.

GETTING TO PERTH

ARRIVING BY AIR

We encourage delegates to optimise their travel by extending their stay and having a holiday (vacation) and adventure experience.

There are 18 international, 12 domestic and regional, and four general aviation airlines that operate at Perth Airport, connecting travellers to more than 110 destinations around Australia and overseas. Perth Airport operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is Australia’s closest airport to South East Asia, Europe and Africa.  It is now possible to fly with Qantas direct from London through to Perth and it is anticipated that more direct routes will be available by 2024.

We are thrilled to announce that the Society for Marine Mammalogy has partnered with Qantas to support our delegates for the upcoming 25th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals.

As part of this collaboration, Qantas is offering discounts on selected flights for all registered delegates (and family members) travelling to the event from within Australia and internationally.

Qantas is Australia’s most trusted airline, with a reputation for delivering excellent service, safety, and reliability. We are proud to have them on board as our official airline partner for this year’s 25th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals, ensuring delegates can travel in comfort and style to our event.

Discounts will be available from early May, at which point delegates can simply book via a dedicated link and access code that will be provided once registered.

LOCAL TRAVEL

There is free city bus transport within Perth City. Transperth provides bus, trains and ferry services  across the broader city. Information about accessibility, fares and timetables can be found at www.transperth.wa.gov.au

Taxis are plentiful, as are on demand transport providers (Uber, Ola and Didi). There are also a number of private charter car and coach companies operating within Perth.

AUSTRALIAN VISAS

All international visitors, except those from New Zealand, require a visa to visit Australia. A Business Visitor visa covers stays of up to three months. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s International Event Coordinator Network (IECN) offers free advice to people seeking to attend an event in Australia.
