  National Conference 2000    

Beyond 2000 - future directions in marine education

General Information

Air Services

We suggest delegates travelling to the National Marine Education conference contact their nearest travel agent with regard to getting the best airfare deals to Perth. It is our understanding that many delegates may be members of airline loyalty programs, so we have therefore not appointed any one airline as the official carrier to the conference.


Airport Transfers

Shuttle buses or taxis are available. Should you require transfers, at your own cost, please advise the Airport Shuttle Operator on telephone +618 9383-4115 or fax +618 9383-4763. (Not all flights are met, therefore your advice of flight number and time will guarantee your place.) Taxi fare to Fremantle from the airport should cost approximately $35. Trains also run from Perth City Central to Fremantle.
