The 2017 Australian Entomological Society Conference

17 - 20 September 2017

Crowne Plaza in Terrigal, New South Wales

Venue 2017

Venue: Crowne Plaza, Terrigal

In 2017 the conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Terrigal on the Central Coast of NSW (an hour north of Sydney) from Sunday 17th to Wednesday 20th September, 2017.

You will know you’re in Terrigal when you see the striking row of Norfolk Island pines that line the beachfront esplanade. While the 4km beach at Terrigal has a reputation as a world-class surfing spot, delegates might be more inclined to quietly enjoy the beautiful location on Broken Head where people have been holidaying since the late 1800s. On the Central Coast you may also consider visiting the Australian Reptile Park – a hands-on zoo located in a natural bush setting with reptiles from around the world and a wide variety of Australian native animals.
