Local transport

Perth has several modes of public transport, from buses to trains. These can be paid by cash or a Transperth SmartRider Card can be purchased (which can be purchased at several places). To plan your journey, you can use the Transperth Journey Planner or google maps. The principle buses that go between UWA or Curtin University and the city center are the 950 and 960 respectively.

Taxis are also readily available, like Swan Taxis (131330 from within WA), Maxi Purpose Taxis (136294 from within WA), along with Uber.

Travel from Airport
Perth Domestic and International airports are about 11 km and 16 km North-East of the CBD, respectively, accessible by car, taxi, and bus. Our suggestion is to use taxis. Taxi ranks are outside the terminal buildings, and fares are ~$30-35 from the domestic airport to CBD, ~$40-$50 from the international airport to CBD. The Perth Airport City Shuttle has several convenient pick-up points located near hotels, motels and hostels across Perth and can be reached at +61 8 9277 7958. Transperth Bus 37 departs outside the domestic arrivals terminal, travelling to Perth city centre via St. Georges Terrace (transfer time ~40 mins), and leaves every ~30 mins during the day, hourly after 6PM, and all day Sunday.


Delegates are required to book their own accommodation. We strongly recommend that you book early.
Below are a list of some of the accommodation available close to the school / workshop venue. We suggest booking accommodation in the CBD, which is approximately equidistant between UWA and Curtin, both of which are accessible by bus.
