Adelaide is South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital. Its ring of parkland on the River Torrens is home to renowned museums such as the Art Gallery of South Australia, displaying expansive collections including noted Indigenous art, and the South Australian Museum, devoted to natural history. The city’s Adelaide Festival is an annual international arts gathering with spin-offs including fringe and film events.

The Adelaide Convention Centre is regarded as one of the world’s most modern, flexible and technologically advanced meetings and events centres. A striking landmark on Adelaide’s Riverbank, the Centre comprises three independent yet seamlessly integrated buildings—East, Central and West. Each building takes advantage of our prime positioning on the River Torrens, providing plenty of natural light and panoramic views of the river to deliver a heightened sense of destination.

If you are driving to the Centre, there are two undercover car parking options with the North Terrace and Riverbank car parks. The Riverbank car park is accessible from Morphett Street / Festival Drive.

Both car parks are located directly under the Centre and operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each is fitted with video surveillance camera systems and security patrols both areas.

Clearance is 2.0 metres and automated payment stations accept payment via card only (major credit cards, debit cards and mobile pay). Please note that the car parks can reach capacity early in the day during busy events.

0-1 HOUR $7.00
1-2 HOURS $11.00
2-3 HOURS $15.00
3-4 HOURS $17.00
EARLY BIRD* $16.00
*Early Bird rate available seven days for entry between 5.30am-9.30am and exit between 2.30pm-6.30pm.

Registration fees do not include insurance of any kind. It is strongly recommended that participants take out their own general travel insurance. It is suggested that the insurance policy cover loss of fees/deposit, airfares, accommodation charges, medical expenses, loss or damage to personal property and repatriation expenses. The Congress Organising Committee, Congress Secretariat and APHA do not take responsibility for any delegate failing to insure.

In registering for APHA Congress, relevant details will be incorporated into a delegate list for the benefit of all delegates (name, organisation and state only) and may be made available to parties directly related to the congress including All Occasions group, venues and accommodation providers (for the purpose of room bookings and APHA Congress options) and key sponsors (subject to strict conditions).

Adelaide city to Adelaide airport is about 15 – 20 minute drive, it is highly recommend that delegates leave adequate time to arrive at the airport prior to your required check-in time, especially if travelling during peak hour. Adelaide airport has both taxi ranks as well as share rider pick up zones located outside the main terminal doors.

JetExpress– runs express bus services between Adelaide Airport and Adelaide CBD, operating every 30 minutes Monday to Friday.


Under Australia’s universal visa system, all visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia (other than New Zealand passport holders who will normally be granted a Special Category visa on arrival, provided they meet health and character requirements; and permanent residents of Norfolk Island who may be granted a Permanent Resident of Norfolk Island visa on arrival).

There are many visa options available to people wishing to visit Australia. The appropriate visa option will depend, amongst other things, on the person’s purpose for visiting Australia.

Please ensure you have the appropriate visa if required.

It is suggested that all visitors should apply for a visa at least two months prior to their intended date of departure, and four months prior for people with character or health concerns.


The trickiest part about travelling is working out what weather to expect and in turn, what to pack.

Here is a quick guide to Adelaide’s weather.

During March in Adelaide, the average temperature is 26/16 degrees. We highly recommend a light jacket for the evenings as it can be cool. A variety of clothing or layering is recommended.
