If using public transport we suggest you purchase a Go-Card, which gives a discount for each journey. Find out where to purchase one here

If staying in a hotel right in the city, your best transport is from Queen Street (Brisbane’s main shopping area) approximately half an hour and $4.11 each way with Go-Card (or walk across the bridge to Southbank). You arrive at your stop within Griffith University with just 2 minutes (max) walk to the conference venue. Travel from Southbank (just across the river) is similar cost and about 25 minutes each way.

Travel from Salisbury Hotel: $3.37 each way with Go-Card, less than 20 minutes (including walking to and from bus stops)
