Venue

Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort & Spa

Conference delegates will meet in the peaceful surrounds of the resort with state-of-the-art equipment on hand.

Positioned in heart of the UNESCO-designated Noosa Biosphere, the resort is an example of how urban design can coexist with the natural ecology without foregoing 5-star service and facilities.

Accommodation

Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort & Spa

Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort & Spa is Noosa’s newest 5-star resort, occupying a prime location just off Noosa’s famed Hastings Street and bordering the spectacular Noosa National Park. This truly breathtaking apartment-style resort is a village in itself, surrounded by a sea of green.

Special rates have been negotiated for conference attendees and delegates are required to complete the Credit card authorisation form, book, and pay the venue directly.

Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort & Spa, Noosa's newest five-star resort, also has a green star to add to its name. This village-style resort was awarded official five-star status in August 2010 from peak industry body AAA Tourism, together with a Green Star rating.  This spectacular resort has raised the benchmark for environmentally sustainable tourism without foregoing five-star service.  

Other accommodation

The Noosa Tourism Information Centre are more than happy to assist you with your requirements if you choose to stay elsewhere other than the conference venue at which the Conference Managers have arranged special accommodation rates for delegates.

Alternative accommodation for delegates in Noosa is extensive and ranges from five-star full service resorts, discreet boutique accommodation and self-contained options, to cosy B&Bs in the nearby hinterland and upmarket golf course resorts.
