CONFERENCE GALA DINNER

Harbourside Room, MCA Sydney

SAT 2 MAY | 19:00 – Late …

The Sydney Masonic Centre is well placed in the Haymarket end of central Sydney, well appointed and easily accessible. Sydney is at its best in autumn, generally sunny and not too hot. There are museums, gardens, beaches, restaurants and many interesting activities to occupy accompanying partners or colleagues.

The conference dinner, open this year to non-members as well, will have a limit on numbers, so book early to enjoy the spectacular setting on the rooftop function centre of the Museum of Contemporary Art at Circular Quay.

We hope you can join us in Sydney in May 2020.
