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.
