We have currently secured deals with two accommodation providers.
We have a number of rooms secured at the university colleges. These are private single rooms with shared bathroom facilities, linen provided, internet access and breakfast provided from $65 a night. University accommodation is a short walk from the venue, with a shuttle bus running from time to time straight to the front door.
This is the best place to stay while attending the conference if you wish to meet people and socialise, with communal common areas and room to accommodate a large number of delegates.
All rooms booked at the university colleges have breakfast included in the accommodation price.
Rooms can be booked when you register for linux.conf.au.
Wrest Point have offered us a discounted rate for their 3.5, 4, and 4.5 star rooms, all with internet access available.
The 3.5 star Mountain Side rooms are similar to the dorm-style accommodation at the University Colleges; however most rooms can accommodate 2 people per room, and have their own ensuite and television. These are available for $126 per room per night.
The 4 star Water Edge rooms are good value, with their own bathroom, television with access to movies, and aircon. These rooms are available for $154 per room per night twin share, and can add a rollout bed for a small additional fee to accommodate 3 people.
The 4.5 star Tower rooms are perfect for anyone looking to travel in style. Fantastic views, lots of room to relax and unwind, and free in-house movies and Austar access for $189 per room per night, most rooms are equipped with a double bed and a single bed to accommodate up to 3 people.
