Accommodation

During your attendance at APES-IES 2018, we recommend staying in the City or South Bank precinct, as there is much more to see and do in these locations during your free time.

Accommodation options in both areas are many and varied, and both locations have easy access to CityCat and Bus networks with direct routes servicing the University of Queensland.

CityCat services depart from both North Quay in the city and South Bank parklands and take approximately 20 – 25 minutes to travel to the University. Click here for City Cat and Ferry Terminal Locations.

We recommend the CityCat service as the most straight-forward public transport option to travel to the University from the City or South Bank precinct.

Direct Bus routes to the University include the following services:

  • Route 66, via the Cultural Centre South Bank – approx. 20 minutes
  • Route 411, via Toowong – approx. 20 minutes
  • Route 412, from Roma Street – approx. 20 minutes
