Tuesday Program - 8:30 AM Start
With so many sessions to present during our time in Sydney, please especially note the early start on Tuesday, 01 November at 8:30 AM with the Welcome & Opening Remarks.  Complete details regarding the week's schedule of activities may be found on the Program page of the IAGR Sydney Conference website.  

Sydney is located in the Southern Hemisphere with springtime just beginning in Australia.  Average daily temperatures in Sydney range from 11C-23C (52F-74F)  but can reach as warm as 30's Celsius (mid-80's F).
Airport Transportation
Attendees will find numerous options for transportation from Sydney International Airport to their respective hotels.

The taxi rank is located directly outside the Sydney International Airport (Terminal T1). The rank is serviced by a kerbside management team to allocate taxis to passengers. A one-way taxi fare from Sydney Airport to Darling Harbour and Sydney CBD is approximately $45-55 (AUD), based on non-peak conditions (morning peak hour is typically 6.30am to 9.00am and the afternoon peak is 4.30pm to 7pm).
Shuttle buses
There are several companies which operate out of Sydney Airport. Shuttle bus desks are located on the arrivals level at the International terminal (T1). Shuttle services can be arranged upon arrival and are a more cost-effective transport option, costing approximately $15-20 (AUD) per passenger. Some shuttle services can offer pick-ups and drop-offs directly to hotels located in Darling Harbour and the Sydney CBD, however, others will drop off at designated locations/ landmarks. It is worth noting shuttle services that offer drop-offs to accommodation will often transport several passengers, so delegates should allow additional travel time. 
Sydney International Airport (Terminal T1) has its own train station, located underground which offers a direct link to the centre of the city. The closest train station to Darling Harbour and the ParkRoyal Hotel is 'Town Hall'. The approximate cost of a train fare to Town Hall is $13.40 (AUD).
Private chauffeured transfers
Offer private transport from Sydney International Airport (Terminal T1). Chauffeurs usually greet and pick-up passengers, pack their bags into the car and provide transport in a luxury car to the hotel. Chauffeured services must be pre-booked, the approximate cost is $100+ (AUD). Listed below are some private chauffeured service providers

Sydney Pull-out Guide
Attendees will receive a conference guide when they check into the IAGR Sydney 2016 Conference Registration Desks outside the Blackwattle Ballroom at the ParkRoyal Darling Harbour Hotel. 

Please locate the pull-out guide in the middle of the booklet which includes a list of nearby restaurants, a map of event-related venues and points of interest around the ParkRoyal Conference Hotel, Darling Harbour, the CBD and The Rocks & Circular Quay near the Opera House & Sydney Harbour Bridge.  Keep this handy as reference for any personal exploration during your stay in Sydney.
We'll see you in three weeks!
