Well, you could google it when you get close. But if you’re like me and refuse to use technology here’s a few pointers and a map:

  • It’s about 30mins by car, taxi, bus or uber from Coolangatta airport
  • There is plenty of parking at the resort if you have a car
  • If you’re coming from Brisbane it’s  about 75km and a one hour trip
  • NOTE: Flights to Coolangatta at that time of the year are about $49 each way ex  Sydney and $89 ex Melbourne, so book NOW! Mind you, that’s Jetstar, so anything could happen.


13. What’s the deal if I’m media?

Media is free so long as you are from a registered media organisation or your personal blog is that good. You just have to register. Each organisation will get one free dinner ticket if you want one, so each group is at least be represented. We’d love to have more of you there getting the low down but frankly we can’t afford it because you drink too much. So if you want more than one from your organisation can you please pay for the extra tickets please. We’d love to have more of you there.

Yes, but for your contribution you will recieve a free All Days ticket. Please register as normal. You just need to identify which session you are speaking in when you register.
