20th International Congress of Cythology

20th International Congress of Cytology
5-9 May 2019
Sidney, Austrália

 

Have a great Christmas break and a prosperous 2019.

 

In terms of regarding what to do in Australia, it depends a lot on how much time you have to spend in Australia and what you like doing when travelling. There is a direct link from the ICC website to travel and accommodation which is provided by a travel group who have organized our block bookings of rooms (click here).

 

In Sydney, I would recommend catching the ferry across the harbour to the zoo and then onto Manly, visiting Manly beach for a surf and then lunch. You could catch a taxi/bus to Bondi Beach and walk around the cliff tops and small beaches to Bronte beach, or do this in reverse and have lunch at Bondi. If you want to shop, suggest Paspaley Pearls on Martin Place, but much of the shopping is international and you live in Paris. A walk through the Botanical Gardens to Lady Macquarie’s Chair with its views of the Opera House/BridgeHarbour, and then onto the Opera House. You can book to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge. A day tour to the Blue Mountains west of Sydney is fun and if you like bush walking the trails there are spectacular. If you want to visit wineries and taste then day or overnight tours to the Hunter Valley two hours north of Sydney is worthwhile. There are some very good reasonably priced wines in Australia. I would recommend some top end restaurants: Aria (overlooking the Opera Hour and Circular Quay), Bondi Icebergs (overlooking Bondi), Bistro Moncur, but there are many others.

 

Outside Sydney, I recommend Melbourne, a large city one hour flight to the south, with great restaurants, art gallery, and city walks, with the Mornington Peninsula one hour to the south east with beautiful scenery and excellent vineyards (pinot noir, chardonnay) and restaurants.

 

Tasmania is 2 hours flight away, with our most ‘historical’ city of Hobart with its 1820 harbourside, and then beautiful countryside and walks/trekking, but it will be cool in early May. Again, some great vineyards.

 

Central Australia is very different, deserts/semi-arid, some striking natural beauty, Uluru, and Katherine.

Brisbane to the north is just another city but travelling further north to Townsville (2 hour flight) gives you access to the Great Barrier reef and its resorts like Hamilton Island, which in May are lovely, beaches and tropical.
