The 28th Annual NSW Coastal Conference will be held in Terrigal on the Central Coast. Just north of Sydney, enjoy an alluring mix of bays, inlets and lakes, and golden and white sandy beaches, as well as picturesque waterfront esplanades.
The NSW Coastal Conference Committee invites you to participate in our 28th Annual NSW Coastal Conference, hosted by Central Coast Council. The Conference will be held from 30th October – 1st November 2019 at Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific, Terrigal, NSW.
The NSW Coastal Conference has grown to become one of the most successful coastal industry events held in Australia. The conference will bring together over 250 delegates from a diverse range of fields, including: all aspects of coastal, estuarine and marine management, science and research, and education, planning, policy and law; and includes representatives from government, the private sector and community groups and the interested public.
The 28th Annual NSW Coastal Conference will be held in Terrigal on the Central Coast.
Past conferences have been held in Merimbula (2018), Port Stephens (2017), Coffs Harbour (2016), Forster (2015), Shoalhaven (2014), Port Macquarie (2013), Kiama (2012), Tweed (2011), Batemans Bay (2010), Ballina (2009), Wollongong (2008), Yamba (2007), Coffs Harbour (2006) and Narooma (2005).
The conference is a three-day event which comprises of plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, panel discussions, workshops. field trips (addressing some of the local coastal, estuary and marine management issues), networking events and the Annual NSW Coastal Management Awards.
This conference will once again be a “bottled water free” conference and we will again be encouraging a “plastic-free conference“. We would appreciate your support with this during the conference as it is essential for the coastal conference community to lead the way.
