2019 National Convention


The 2019 National Convention will be held in Hobart from Friday 29 March to Monday 1 April.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest for session contributors. You can find more information along with an application form HERE.


We are excited to be partnering with The Old Woolstore, a historic building in the heart of Hobart, to host the convention proceedings as well as our accommodation. The venue is full of character while also being accessible. It is centrally located, close to cafes, restaurants, shops, entertainment, and other accommodation options. And less than 20 minutes from the airport.

The Old Woolstore has a mixture of accommodation types which you can book at the following rates using the code “BCA” when you call 03 6235 5355:

  • Hotel room – $170 per night
  • 1 bed apartment – $205 per night
  • 2 bed apartment (sleeps 4) – $270 per night

This means there are more options for those who wish to share accommodation or prepare their own meals while attending convention.

The Program

There will be workshops on the Friday afternoon, followed by more formal convention sessions on the Saturday and Sunday. We will also be arranging sightseeing options and additional workshops on the Monday for those who wish to stay a little longer.

Find out how you or your organisation can contribute to the convention program.

Family Friendly Convention

We want to make conventions as inclusive as possible, which in this case means ensuring that partners and children have activity options available to them while Convention sessions are taking place.

This may include:

  • Having volunteers dedicated to supervise youngsters for different activities,
  • Providing a child care service

If you have any feedback about this, or further suggestions, please feel free to get in touch.
