Australian Entomological Society 48th AGM and Scientific Conference – 2017 Conference
17 September - 20 September
This year the conference theme will be the science behind biosecurity and the protection of the economy, environment and community from negative impacts associated with insect pests. The exciting science that underpins successful biosecurity will be on show where topics will include, amongst other things, the principles of preparedness, prevention, management, and biology of our invading (or already “invaded”) pests.
In 2017 the conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Terrigal on the Central Coast of NSW (an hour north of Sydney) from Sunday 17th to Wednesday 20th September, 2017.
You will know you’re in Terrigal when you see the striking row of Norfolk Island pines that line the beachfront esplanade. While the 4km beach at Terrigal has a reputation as a world-class surfing spot, delegates might be more inclined to quietly enjoy the beautiful location on Broken Head where people have been holidaying since the late 1800s. On the Central Coast you may also consider visiting the Australian Reptile Park – a hands-on zoo located in a natural bush setting with reptiles from around the world and a wide variety of Australian native animals.
