Wollongong is served by a "Free Bus" route that is very convenient. Every 10 minutes or so, a bus traveling the "free bus route" arrives on campus. We are recommending staying at accommodation that are on or near the free bus route.

Conference hotels are ones located at the best location, downtown, that provide delegates with a discount by booking them yourself (this is, by not going through a travel agent who cannot receive a commission on these low rates). The conference hotels are 2, 4, and 5 star. The buses for InSITE: Connect picks up delegates near these sites only. We deliver your conference materials to conference hotels only. Most importantly, by staying at a conference hotel, you will have contact with fellow InSITE delegates.

InSITE endeavors to provide you, the delegate, with the best conference rates available. But always check to see if you can find even better rates online. Unlike other conferences, we do not receive recompense from conference hotels. When you check for better rates, be sure to visit as we have arranged with them to provide you with a 10% rebates on your hotel reservation if you book it through one of their 14 booking sites, including, Priceline, and
