Conference dinner

Luna Park, Milsons Point, Sydney | Tuesday 6/12/2022 | 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This Sydney landmark will play host to the official ASCILITE 2022 conference dinner, including all the dancing and celebration ASCILITE conferences are known for. Buses from the University of Sydney are included in the ticket cost, and the venue is also accessible via a short walk from Milsons Point train station, or via ferry from Circular Quay. Please note that the Luna Park rides will not be accessible on the evening; if you wish to experience the full park we suggest arriving early for the conference and visiting over the weekend.

The theme of the conference dinner is ‘Masked Ball’.

ASCILITE conference dinners are fun, casual events. Smart casual is usually what guests wear. The venue itself has no minimum dress expectation.

If you need a bus to the venue, there will be buses departing in the afternoon from various locations.

Note that there have been some changes to the bus schedule. Please refer to the below updated information:
