The Conference at a glance:
The venue for the Conference is the recently renovated Tatiara Civic Centre, 43 Woolshed Street, Bordertown. This is a wonderful venue – modern and spacious. Containing a main hall, theatre, conference room and the Bob Hawke & Walkway Art Galleries, it can cater for all our Conference requirements.
Bordertown, the childhood home of former prime minister Bob Hawke, is a terrific town that will provide a great country feel for the Conference. It is also well positioned to provide a wide range of pre-conference tours to highlight Landcare and natural resources management projects in the South East NRM Region.
