Event Details

Hamilton Island is the largest inhabited island of the Whitsunday Islands in QueenslandAustralia. It is positioned approximately 887 kilometres (551 mi) north of Brisbane and 512 kilometres (318 mi) south of Cairns. It is also the only island in the Great Barrier Reefwith its own commercial airport, with short direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Cairns. Like most in the Whitsunday group, Hamilton Island was formed as sea levels rose which created numerous drowned mountains that are situated close to the east coast of Queensland.

Guests are encouraged to download the handy island app, which offers daily updates on activities, shuttle times, restaurants, bars and more.



We’ve learnt a lot in 30 years of business, but that doesn’t mean we ever stop innovating or challenging the way we do things. The future can seem daunting when navigating it alone, so that’s why this year’s conference is all about working ‘together towards tomorrow’ to share knowledge, develop new ideas and take Fernwood into the next 30 years and beyond. Hamilton Island will host inspiring speakers and practical workshops, as well as good times and tan lines. Work as a team throughout the conference to move through the uncertainty and overcome any obstacles in your way. A full agenda will be provided in due course.




Early-bird registration is $960 per person and ends on 23 August, 2019 then reverts to the standard registration price  of $1,060 per person.
