Conference Venue: The Brisbane Hilton

One of Brisbane's Best Hotels (Top 10%), this 5-Star venue provides central access to the best of Brisbane — Queensland’s sunny, cheerful, and enthusiastic capital city.  Brisbane balances old-world charm with new-world vibrance in a laid back and friendly atmosphere.  Its sub-tropical climate with a beautiful river bend in the middle of its city make it a unique metropolitan destination. The hotel and its surrounding will encourage fruitful discussions at SIMPAR.

Have a free day? Enjoy the Brisbane CityCat Ferry network. From the hustle of New Farm to the serenity of Lady Musgrave Island at the Southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef, there is something for everyone.  We welcome you to SIMPAR's sunny home.
