The meeting hotel is Peppers Blue on Blue Resort Magnetic Island. This is by far the most comfortable hotel on the Island. The organisers have reserved a progressive release room block for the event. You need to book your room directly with the hotel. As rooms are limited we strongly suggest you arrange a twin share with your colleagues before you book and book as soon as possible.

The hotel rate includes accommodation, breakfast, WiFi and ferry transfers to and from the island.

The hotel booking form can be found here. Please compete it and send it directly to the hotel:

  • e-mail blueonblue.conf@peppers.com.au
  • FAX +61 7 4758 2499

Alternative accommodation can be found in Nelly Bay within 300 meters of the venue. The next most convenient hotel on the Island is Grand Mercure Apartments, which is next door to the Peppers Blue on Blue Resort. This hotel doesn’t serve breakfast, but you can purchase tickets to have breakfast at Peppers Blue on Blue Resort. For other options, please check the following link.

Budget accommodation in Townsville is also possible as the ferry operated a regular daily service. The venue is 100m from the ferry wharf. The timetable and pricing can be found here:

Please note. The 7th of October 2019 is a public holiday in Queensland so please book your accommodation early as it will become difficult and expensive to obtain closer to the event date.
