Join other ASM delegates in celebrating what we know will be another fantastic ANZSN Gala Dinner.  The dinner includes a 3 course meal with drinks and entertainment.
The ASM Gala Dinner venue, Jones Bay Wharf, is located 14 minutes walk along Darling Harbour.  We anticipate most guests will enjoy this walk, however if you have mobility issues (or if foot wear is not conducive to walking) there will be coaches available for the transfer.  Please indicate during registration if you would like to catch the coach to the dinner instead of walking.  Coaches will depart and return to the ICC.Coaches will be available for ALL GUESTS for the RETURN TRIP.  They will depart on a staggered timetable from the conclusion of dessert to the end of the dinner.
