Wollongong or “the Gong” as it is fondly referred to by locals and return visitors, is the third largest city in NSW located just 75km’s south of Sydney on the Pacific coast.
The congress will be held at the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach Conference Centre, that features 14 multi-function rooms and extensive exhibition space with views over the coastline and escarpment.
The fabulous coastal routes dotted with crystal clear coves boast some of the world’s most pristine beaches stretching for many kilometres.
Enjoy the backdrop of the Illawarra Escarpment which is covered with World Heritage National Parks and rainforests.
The congress theme is "HEALTHY SHEEP TO FEED AND CLOTHE THE WORLD"
