The meeting programme will include exciting International and national speakers, an all-day cadaver workshop and scientific posters presentation.

And then there is the social programme….

We imagine most of you would have been to Brisbane but for those who have not yet truly lived, we would love for you to come and experience our friendly culture, charming vibe, warm temperatures with 280 days of sun per year and paradisal biodiversity.

Our curtains may not be as faded and cows not confused – as of course we do not have daylight savings but for your morning requirements, our coffee up here is pretty good with a thriving coffee and cafe culture. Our restaurants are second to none, the produce and seafood amazing – and the people welcoming.  

The city boasts over 2000 beautiful parks, the Botanic Gardens and Southbank precinct and there are so many other attractions beyond the city, that it will be too much for one trip – so you’ll have to come back!

We cannot wait for you to join us at the NSANZ ASM in 2023.
