8th Biennial State Conference
September 6 – 8, 2019
Elizabeth College, North Hobart
The Lodge on Elizabeth is located across the road from the conference venue.
Quest Trinity is within easy walking distance and offers “straightforward apartments”
Closer city hotels include the Best Western, Hadley’s (a delightfully period hotel which describes itself as a “refined hotel dating from 1834”), RACT / RACV Hobart Apartment Hotel, Travelodge Hobart, Ibis Styles Hotel.
If you want assured comfort and a slightly more upmarket price tag, along with a slightly longer journey, the Old Woolstore or the Grand Chancellor might be more to your taste.
There are some pubs nearby that do offer accommodation at varying levels, but they may also come with noise: the Queens Head, the Black Buffalo, the Homestead, the Tasmanian Inn.
Booking.com has many of these and more options, as do other hotel booking sites.
AIRBNB has a variety of choices from hostel to private homes or apartments listed near North Hobart. TAG President’s network has advised the following properties are available – if you are travelling with friends you might want to consider them: https://abnb.me/Wsw7eEMy8W https://abnb.me/PZyFVh2i9W https://abnb.me/BWlDQj6i9W
None of these has been checked by the TAG committee.
For location reference, Elizabeth College is located on the block between Elizabeth and Murray Streets along Warwick Street. There are very regular bus services running up Elizabeth Street, past the College, departing from the GPO, or you can catch the bus at the stop on Elizabeth Street just west of Liverpool Street.
If you are travelling from interstate or overseas… why not visit iconic Mount Wellington, Salamanca Market, or the historic West Coast Wilderness Railway; witness convict heritage at the Port Arthur Historic Site; sample wine at the vineyards of the south or north, or try Tasmania’s outstanding seafood and fresh produce? Come for the conference, stay for the scenery, food, wine and activities!
