241 Royal Parade
The 2018 FAA Conference venue is International House, located on Royal Parade in Parkville, approximately two kilometres north of Melbourne’s CDB and a 15 minute walk from the University of Melbourne’s Parkville campus.
In 2004 and 2006 we hosted our FAA Conferences at International house. Since then a lot of the venue has been upgraded boasting a brand new George Hicks Building where many of the lectures will be held in air-conditioned comfort.
International House is bordered on two sides by Princess Park and Royal Park, both of which boast a network of walking and cycling tracks. It is a 15-minute tram ride from Melbourne’s CBD and a 30-minute walk to Lygon Street in Carlton, a bustling quarter of restaurants and Italian cafés, shops and Readings Bookstore, which won the International Bookstore of the Year Award at the 2016 London Book Fair. The Melbourne Zoo and Barkly Square Shopping Complex are an easy 15 minute walk away.
