How to get there
The University of Western Australia (UWA) is a 10 minute drive from the Perth CBD. The UWA Business School can be accessed by car using Hackett Entrance 4 and University Club can be accessed by car using Hackett Entrance 1 on Hackett Drive, Crawley. Please refer to the UWA Campus Map and UWA Parking Areas Map. Parking is free in yellow student permit bays on conference days, due to the vacation period. Ticketed visitor parking is also available in the Business School car park (P9) and the Royal Perth Yacht Club.
UWA can also be accessed by public transport, but please note it will take approximately 12 minutes to walk from the bus stop on Stirling Highway to the Business School, and about 8 minutes to the University Club. Please refer to UWA's Public Transport information.
Perth is Australia's only capital city where you can enjoy the beach lifestyle, relax in natural bushland, sample world-class local wines and watch an ocean sunset within just 30 minutes of the city. It's also the sunniest state capital, averaging 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and boasting a string of 19 beautifully clean and uncrowded beaches, from iconic Cottesloe to the surf hotspot of Scarborough.
Situated beside the Swan River, Perth is a living picture postcard, with the best views of all from Kings Park and Botanic Garden - one of the biggest inner-city parks in the world. Larger than New York's Central Park, there are so many ways to enjoy its 400-plus hectares of sculpted gardens and natural bushland. Stroll the treetop walk, take an Indigenous cultural tour, picnic among the gum trees and in Spring, see the wildflowers in bloom. Refer to Tourism WA to read more about Perth and Western Australia.
