General Information

Venue Location

The 6th International Archean Symposium will be hosted at the University Club and the Octagon Theatre at the University of Western Australia.

The University Club

The University Club of Western Australia is located on Hackett Drive in Crawley, just an 8 minute drive from Perth CBD on the stunning, landscaped grounds of WA’s oldest university. Since opening its doors in 2005, the Club’s award-winning cuisine, impeccable service and enviable riverside location have earned it a reputation as one of Perth’s premier conference and event venues.

As a guest of the Club, delegates attending the conference will have temporary access to the Club’s Café and Bar, which is normally reserved for members. So if you arrive early, feel free to purchase a barista coffee, maybe some breakfast and relax with a newspaper. Likewise, feel free to stop off at the bar after the conference for a refreshing drink.

Transport

There are a range of transport options including public transport, taxi, ride share and parking facilities to get to the conference venue. Maps and public transport information can be found below.

You can reach the conference venue via the 950 bus, which runs from Morley Bus Station, through the City and along Mounts Bay Road to the University. If taking an Uber or taxi, please let the driver know that you are going to Hackett Entrance 1, Hackett Drive (as guests are often mistakenly dropped off at the Forrest Hall building across the road). If you are driving, there is pay-and-display parking along Hackett Drive and in all of the car parks marked with a green symbol on the attached map. As these machines only accept coins at this point in time, it is advisable to bring change with you.

In addition, full-day parking will be available in car park 3, immediately adjacent to the Club) at a cost of $15.00 per day. You can purchase a blue parking permit from the parking attendant on duty. Please be sure to display this permit on your dashboard, and to park in the designated bays (and not in the red permit section). Without a blue permit, there is a 3 hour limit in this car park.

Accommodation

We encourage conference participants to book their accommodation early. There are a range of options located near the conference venue, including hotels, hostel and limited campus accommodation. The 6IAS is not affiliated with any individual hotel or booking service. If you receive a solicited email from an apparent transport or accommodation provider, please treat with suspicion.
