AusCERT2013 venue

The AusCERT2013 Conference will be held at the RACV Royal Pines Resort, a 5 star property on 200 hectares just 12 minutes drive from the beaches of Surfers Paradise. All the resort accommodation offers panoramic views of the golf course, hinterland or Gold Coast.

The resort has undergone a multi-million dollar renovation developing the pre-existing Lobby Lounge into an exquisite Coffee Lounge, featuring luxurious Vittoria coffees, and a totally new and sophisticated Lobby Bar, complete with stylish leather seating with fantastic views to the golf course.

If you are staying at one of the alternative conference selected hotels, a complimentary shuttle service will run at various times during the day. If you are staying at a venue of your own choice close to one of our selected hotels, you are welcome to join our shuttle service at either of these venues. A timetable will be available closer to the event, and also at the registration desk.
