Transportation Guide:

Air Travel

Melbourne Airport is 22 kilometres from the Central Business District (CBD). This is a 30-minute drive dependent on traffic conditions. Transfers from the airport are readily available via taxi, shuttle bus, car hire or private hire operators. For travel information, please visit the following melb3link:http://melbourneairport.com.au/

Skybus

Melbourne Airport is serviced by the Skybus Super Shuttle—the only bus service linking the airport to the city. Tickets are available from the driver; from the information booth outside the terminal; or from the Skybus Super Shuttle website. Tickets prices (as at May 2012) are AUD17 one way or AUD28 return. For more information visit: www.skybus.com.au

Taxi

Taxis have their own taxi ranks or can be hailed from the street. Taxis are available from the ground floor level of Melbourne Airport, outside the international terminal and both domestic terminals. Expect a taxi fare of around AUD60 for a taxi ride between the CBD and Melbourne Airport.

Public Transport

Most of Melbourne’s main attractions are within walking distance to the forum venue and recommended hotels; however public transport is easily accessible and affordable.

Myki is Melbourne’s smartcard ticketing system. With myki you can travel on all of Melbourne’s trains, trams and buses. A myki can be purchased from train stations, some tram stops and bus interchanges, 7 Eleven stores, retail outlets and newsagents displaying the myki sign. A myki visitor pack containing a map, instructions for use, a myki card with enough value for one day’s travel in Zone 1 (the entire tram network) and discounts to various Melbourne attractions is also available for purchase from the Melbourne Visitor Centre.

Melbourne Visitor Shuttle Bus

On the Melbourne Visitors Shuttle Bus delegates can hop on and off at any of the 13 key city locations including the Melbourne Museum, Queen Victoria Market, Royal Botanic Gardens and Chinatown.

Delegates can catch the tram at any of the specially marked stops on Flinders Street, Harbour Esplanade, Docklands Drive or Spring Street. The City Circle route uses iconic W-Class trams, offering passengers an historical experience and commentary along the way. ptv.vic.gov.au

Event Overview
Welcome message:

We are pleased to announce that the Melbourne International Breast Congress will be held jointly with the Australasian Society for Breast Disease (ASBD), 4th World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer (CoBrCa) and Breast Surgeons of Australia and New Zealand (BreastSurgANZ). This most important congress will take place in Melbourne, Australia, October 11-14, 2018. As the main congress in the field of breast diseases in the Asia-Pacific region in 2018, it is one that should not be missed!

The Joint Congress will continue the tradition of CoBrCa by directly addressing key issues facing clinicians in their daily practice, including medical oncology, surgery, radiation oncology, pathology, reconstruction, breast imaging, allied health and survivorship issues. The collaboration will create a multi-faceted congress of interest to all involved in the treatment of breast disease and will bring many renowned experts to Australia. Through a format of debates, lectures and panel discussions, the congress will provide a forum to effectively address unresolved clinical and therapeutic problems.  There will also be a series of workshops and education sessions preceding and during the meeting to address the educational needs of the audience

We look forward to your participation in this exceptional event.

Sincerely,

Yvonne Zissiadis   Bruce Mann   Christobel Saunders
