Social Program

Aside from our conference talks, we will have a selection of events surrounding the conference. At this stage, this includes the conference dinner and the Moorunde 50th anniversary open day.

Moorunde 50th anniversary open day

WombatsSA (the Natural History Society of South Australia) will be holding an open day at Moorunde Wildlife Reserve in the Murraylands, on the 15th of September (the Saturday before the conference). The open day will celebrate 50 years since the establishment of the park, with walks to wombat warrens and a barbecue lunch for a small donation. Head to the NHSSA websiteLink to external website for more information about the reserve, and click hereLink to external website to visit the Facebook event page for the open day.

If there is sufficient interest, we will look at putting on a bus out to Moorunde - please email Michael Swinbourne if you are interested.

Quiz Night

Quiz Night

WombatsSA will be holding a quiz/trivia night on the Monday night of the conference at the Cathedral Hotel in North Adelaide. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Come along and demonstrate your knowledge (or lack of it!) of our native species, and have some fun in the process. The Cathedral Hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the conference venue, and is right across the road from the Adelaide Oval and St Peters Cathedral.

Conference dinner

Our conference dinner is to be held on Tuesday the 18th of September and will be a night to remember with a three course meal and open bar served at the University's Staff Club on campus. A wonderful opportunity to network and socialise with the widespread wombat community as we all gather in Adelaide.

Light entertainment will be provided by Stacey TonkinLink to external website, an Australian singer, specialising in a range of genres including jazz, RnB, soul and pop.
