Venue and Accommodation

Southern Cross University Gold Coast campus

Southern Cross University, Gold Coast

We are bringing CAUTHE 2015 'beachside' at the same time as 'back to campus' at SCU's Gold Coast campus at the Southern Gold Coast.

Only 400 metres from North Kirra Beach and beside the Gold Coast Airport in Coolangatta, the Gold Coast campus is the Southern Cross University's newest. With views of the Pacific Ocean, international standard facilities, the campus provides a great study environment in a contemporary setting.

The Foundation Building A was opened in 2010 and a second 10-story Building B opened in February 2013. The majority of the program - panel forums and concurrent sessions - will be conducted on campus, with some plenary, keynote and social events being held in nearby locations.
