Getting There & Accommodation Options

Urgent appeal. Socialist Alliance needs to submit an updated list of over 1500 members to the Australian Electoral Commission to maintain our electoral registration and appear on the ballot at the next federal election. We're asking all existing members and those interested in joining to confirm your willingness to support our electoral enrolment by filling in this form.

Now is the time to book your flight to the Alliance's Sixth National Conference. The more you delay, the more you'll probably pay (unless some last minutes sales come on line). The cheapest prices available at the moment are from Jetstar (with the exception of Canberra, which is serviced by Virgin Blue). The cheapest one-way flights presently available are listed below.

Cairns to Melbourne (Tullamarine) $179
Townsville to Melbourne (Tullamarine) $209
Brisbane to Melbourne (Avalon) $109

The Skybus coach fare from Tullamarine to Southern Cross Station is $16, and Gull runs a coach service from Tullamarine direct to Geelong for $30 one way ($56 return)

Train timetables: plan your journey.

Please note that if the National Executive adopts the same approach to this conference as to previous conference then there will be a single registration fee for all delegates, which will be used to equalise the travel cost for delegates. More on this in the next Alliance Voices.
