There are numerous other places to stay within a few kilometres of the conference venue and over 100 on the wider Sunshine Coast. Go to the Visit Sunshine Coast website (where to stay), Google maps,  Booking.com or other accommodation booking site to find out more.

If you stay at the Novotel, there are plenty of options for breakfast and dinner meals – and the Sunshine Coast is full of beautiful places to eat out.

PLACES TO VISIT

Discover a bunch of Australia's amazing animals including koalas, crocodiles, various snakes, the red panda, echidnas, eagles ... and many more.

Australia Zoo

See the wonders of the underwater world! Discover a range of creatures that you'll rarely see anywhere else. See sting rays, get up close (not too close!) with sharks, have a laugh at some very entertaining seals, and much more.

Sea Life

Like walking and the outdoors? Visit the Noosa National Park. It features the spectacular coastal scenery of Noosa Headland, and nearby areas around Lake Weyba, Peregian and Coolum. This park is a wildlife sanctuary, protecting beautiful stands of eucalypt forest, woodland, melaleuca wetland and pockets of dense vine-strewn rainforest.
