22nd – 26th March 2023

The Conference will be held at The Commodore, 1 Jubilee Highway East, Mount Gambier

Mount Gambier has many accomodation options available. Have a look at the Discover Mount Gambier Website to get you started.

Some recommendations include:

  • Several upmarket options to check out are Delgattie Estatewww.delgattie.com.au or Colhurst Housewww.colhursthouse.com.au These are both close by The Commodore – 210mtr and 750mtr respectively – and quite delightful if you like something special or The Barn www.thebarn.com.au but this option will require your own transport as it is 9km out of town.


  • The Commodore has a range of rooms at various price points. www.thecommodoremtg.com.au  This is the onsite option and great if you push the snooze button on the alarm once too often.
    We have negotiated a corporate discount, but you need to ring direct and identify yourself with AWPA to get it PH: 08 8724 6400.


  • For several budget conscious options we suggest The Red Carpet Motel and The Henty. www.thehenty.com.au  These Motels are owned by the same people and are alongside each other.
    The Red Carpet is on the elective surgery list for a makeover which may be well progressed by March. The Henty is at the end of her makeover so she’s looking youthful and brand new.
    Bookings for these two are done through the Henty. PH:08 7725 4100 or online.
    Rooms at the Red Carpet currently start at $99/night and at The Henty from $125/night. There are multiple bed configs and options for those wishing to share.
    These two establishments are a 1.6 km stroll along the Jubilee Hwy from The Commodore.


  • Last but not least in the suggestion box is the Blue Lake Holiday Park www.bluelake.com.au where there are some very well appointed cabins in a delightful setting. However, this is quite a stroll… especially if time is limited…3.4 km down the hill and through the town to The Commodore so would be best to have a vehicle at your disposal for ease of access to everything and of course your own convenience.
