Conference cancelled due to government ban

As you may have already seen today, the government has placed a ban on gatherings of more than 500 people due to the COVID-19 virus.  

It is with a heavy collective heart that ACORN follows the directive of the government and cancels the ACORN International Conference.  

We understand you will have many questions about this. We ask that you respect the College's staff as they manage the the many critical processes that need to be resolved. Please know that we will be in contact with you as soon as possible regarding refunds and/or credits for future services.

Visit New South Wales

There is plenty to do and see in Sydney while you are attending the conference but why not see more of country and regional New South Wales (NSW) while you are here too? From the Blue Mountains to the alpine regions of the south, secluded coastal inlets and beaches to sub-tropical rainforest, wine regions to the great Outback, NSW offers plenty of opportunity to get out and see much more of Australia.
