Conference Venue 

AFMC2024 will be held at Hotel Realm, 18 National Circuit, Barton ACT 2600, Australia (Google Maps link). This is one of Canberra’s finest hotels, located in the heart of Canberra near Parliament House, the National Press Club, Lake Burley Griffin, museums, art galleries and other attractions. It is a short walk to the many cosmopolitan shopping, eating and entertainment options of Manuka and Kingston, and a short bus ride (or longer walk) to the shopping malls in Civic on the north side of Lake Burley Griffin.

The conference will start in the National Ballroom of Hotel Realm, with parallel sessions to be held in the subdivided Ballroom and also in the two High Courtyard rooms. Registrations will be conducted at a desk on the upper mezzanine foyer level, outside the Ballroom.

Banquet Venue 

The banquet for AFMC2024 will be held on the evening of Tues 3 Dec 2024, in Gandel Hall at the National Gallery of Australia. Places are limited, so it will be essential to book early (through the registration system) to avoid disappointment.

A walking map from Hotel Realm to the National Gallery of Australia is provided through this Google Maps link. As we walk, we will talk about some evidence of Canberra’s military history, including the 1940s underground pneumatic mail service and tales of secret tunnels.
