Dear Colleague,

We invite you to join us for the 2024 ANZSPR Annual Scientific Meeting. The 2024 meeting will be held at Cable Beach Resort, Broome, Western Australia between the 14th-17th June.

Broome is located in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, where the breathtaking turquoise coastline meets the rugged red dirt wilderness of the outback. It is a town of historical and cultural significance, presenting visitors with the opportunity to learn about its rich Indigenous culture and pearl diving industry. Broome is a gateway to exploring the Kimberley’s magnificent landscapes, wetlands and wildlife, presenting unique nature experiences, courtesy of boasting the highest tidal range in the southern hemisphere.

Due to Broome’s remoteness, we recommend booking early to make the most of accommodation and flight options. A discounted room rate has been held for a limited number of rooms at the Cable Beach Resort for the duration of the conference. If you desire an extension to your stay, please contact Rebecca Fielding, our conference organiser, at such that these modifications can be applied to your booking.
