General Location

Location map

Royal Pines Resort is located at the heart of the Gold Coast, midway between the magnificent beaches of Surfers Paradise and the lush rainforests of the Hinterland. Situated on 500 acres of magnificently landscaped gardens, the resort is 12 minutes drive from Surfers Paradise, the Casino and Pacific Fair shopping centre.
Ashmore is 24 km north of the Gold Coast Airport and 80km south of Brisbane Airport.

REGISTRATION

Registration for the 66th MPEG meeting will be on-line and by credit-card prior to the event. Registration will be A$682 (inc GST) including daily lunch. Weekend AHG meeting attendees will be asked to pay an extra A$55 (inc GST) per day to cover room costs and lunch on those days (note that the venue is some way from restaurants etc so lunch on-site is the best option). Delegates can book accommodation online for directly with the Royal Pines Resort. The meeting rate will be A$187 per standard room per night including breakfast, and $247 for a junior suite including breakfast. These rates will also be available for three days either side of the meeting. Please make certain you mention "MPEG meeting" and book before 18 September to ensure that you receive the meeting special rate. Since the Indy car is taking place the weekend after the meeting it is wise to make early reservations if possible!

FLIGHTS

The hotel is close to the Gold Coast (Coolangatta) Airport (OOL). We recommend that you fly to Sydney (SYD) or Melbourne (MEL) and then on to Coolangatta/Gold Coast (OOL). Coolangatta is served by both Qantas and Virgin Blue airlines. An alternate airport is Brisbane International but that is twice as far from the resort.

There are several road based transport options from Coolangatta to the resort.

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION

The best option is to fly into Coolangatta/Gold Coast (OOL). From there, the journey is a 25 minute drive and the transport options are: Aiport Shuttle Bus (all Gold Coast Hotels), hourly on hour (A$17), Taxi (A$50), or Limousine/Coach transfers (hotel will arrange these via hotel bookings).

The alternative, a longer route, is to fly to Brisbane International airport (BNE). From there it is a 50 minute drive and the transport options are: Airtrain to Nerang + Taxi (A$17.50+taxi) to the resort (half hourly service), Taxi (A$150), or Limousine/Coach transfers (hotel will arrange these via hotel bookings).

Hire cars are not expensive in Australia. We recommend Hertz. Please remember that Australia drives on the LEFT. Hertz have rental locations at both Coolangatta and Brisbane International airports. Driving on the Gold Coast is relatively easy except during peak hour when major highways can become busy.

PASSPORTS, VISAS AND VACCINATIONS

Important! All travellers to Australia, other than Australian and New Zealand citizens, require a valid authority to enter Australia - either a visa or an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). Visas are available from Australian diplomatic offices such as Australian Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates. Electronic Travel Authorities (ETAs) are issued electronically by participating travel agents connected to one of the major computer reservation systems, or from the reservation office of a participating airline.

Some delegates may need a letter of invitation to receive a visa. These are available on request from Alistair Tegart at Standards Australia

More information is available from the web site of the Australian Department of Immigration.

Vaccinations are not required unless you have come from, or have visited, a yellow fever infected country or zone within six days prior to arrival. You do not need any other health certificate to enter Australia .

QUARANTINE

Australia is an island continent, well protected from most animal and agricultural pests and diseases. To help maintain this, strict quarantine regulations apply, and the casual importation of food, seeds, animals, plants, animal or plant products is prohibited.

Quarantine regulations are strictly enforced, and penalties are very high. When you arrive in Australia , if you have any doubts about an item in your possession, declare it, and one of our helpful Customs Officers will assess it. More information is available from the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service.

CUSTOMS

In common with most other countries, Australia allows in-bound passengers to import modest amounts of duty free alcohol, tobacco and perfume. High value gifts may be subject to a tax. More information is available from the Australian Customs Service.

CURRENCY AND CREDIT CARDS

The basic unit of currency is the Australian Dollar. Notes come in AUD 100, AUD 50, AUD 20, AUD 10 and AUD 5 denominations. Coins come in 5, 10, 20, 50, AUD 1 and AUD 2 denominations.

Exchange rates are available at http://www.xe.com/

Major credit cards such as American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Diners Club are widely accepted.

ATMs (Cashpoints) are very commonplace throughout Australia , and generally accept a wide range of cards, including Cirrus/Maestro cards.

TAX REFUNDS

Australia has a Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 10%, which by law is always included in the displayed or marked price. For tourists buying goods in excess of AUD 300 as part of a single purchase, a refund of the tax is available when they are exported. This is obtained through the Tourist Refund Scheme (TRS) desk at your airport of departure. (Please note, however, that most Australian shops serving tourists do provide a tax-free purchasing option on presentation of a valid passport and airline ticket. TRS does not apply in these cases.)

INSURANCE

The organisers and hosts cannot accept any responsibility for accidents, losses and/or damages that may occur. Delegates are advised to obtain travel, medical, personal accident and luggage insurance in their home countries prior to departure.

LOCAL RESTAURANTS ETC

The Gold Coast is a major tourism centre in Australia . There is no shortage of restaurants and nightlife. Surfers paradise is a short journey from the hotel and offers many restaurants and there are several closer to the resort. For restaurants and locations see : http://gctweed.com/cuisineguide/index.html. Of course, the resort also has four restaurants of different types.

LOCAL EVENTS & ACTIVITIES

The meeting takes place the week before the Gold Coast Indy 300 race. This is a very popular event and delegates who are interested in attending should book early via the web site.

The Resort has details of local tours that delegates may take of the Gold Coast hinterland or coastline. Additionally, the resort is in close proximity to the Gold Coast’s famous attractions:

TRAVEL TIPS

Electricity

The electric supply in Australia is 230-250 volts a.c. 50 Hz. You will need an adaptor to fit your plug into an Australian 3 pin socket. Adaptors are readily available at local stores.

If your standard electric supply is 110 volts (North America), you will need an adaptor (which changes the shape of the plug) and a converter (which changes the voltage). Do not make the mistake of just using the adaptor unless the appliance you are using has a voltage switch on it.

Telephones

Telephone outlets in major hotels take the American modular (RJ11) plug; however, some locations still require a unique Australian telephone plug. Adaptors are readily available at local stores.

Public Payphones

The public payphones will either take a phone card or coins. A local call will cost at least 40 cents.

Shopping Hours

Generally, shops do not stay open late in Australia. Most shopping centres are open from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday and 9am to 8pm on Thursday or Friday (varies with city); 9am to 5pm on Saturday, and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.

Banking Hours

The banks are open from 9:30am to 4pm Monday through Thursday, and 9am to 5pm on Friday. ATMs are available in many locations and take most cards.

Tipping

Tipping is not customary. It is at your own discretion and generally only for exceptional service. As a guide, add 7 to 10% to a restaurant bill.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted within public buildings and is not permitted at all on public transport, including domestic air flights.

DEPARTING AUSTRALIA

All persons 12 years and older must pay AUD 27.00 Passenger Movement Charge (Departure Tax). This may be included in ticket prices.
