The Pavilion has provided TCN with a code for anyone wanting to book accommodation.

The code is “CONFEVENT”. On their website you need to click on the box PROCODEEXCLUSIVE and change this to CONFEVENT and hit Apply.

However they also have discounts on line direct to the hotel, if paid in advance, and these are very good. Plus you may find good deals on booking engines like or trivago or wotif.

Other Accommodation:

There are many other accommodation options in the centre of Canberra including apartments, budget and luxury accommodation.  Take a look at your favourite booking engine such as Trivago, Wotif, to make your choice

Accommodation or flight packages have not been organised as people have so many varied requirements – some come with partners and/or family, others alone or sharing with other celebrants they know;  and flights are also determined by choice of time to travel, using frequent flyer points, etc.

There are so many hotels and accommodation options on Northbourne Avenue in Canberra – the rates vary.

Some of these are the Pavilion (City Group) nice rooms refurbished, but with shower over bath; Avenue Hotel (which is another of the City Group) and not to be confused with The Avenue! – larger rooms with walk-in showers; and Pacific Suites which have larger suite accommodation – although good pricing if sharing.
