Conference Accommodation


Oceanique, the conference venue, is on the sea front at West Beach, a 5 minute stroll from The Retreat at West Beach Parks (formerly West Beach Parks Resort).  

Luxury accommodation can be booked in Villas and Bungalows at The Retreat at West Beach Parks that can be shared by up to 6 people.  There are lawn areas and a pool for relaxing. Enjoy the fantastic location with only a short taxi ride to and from the airport, or to the coastal holiday destination of Glenelg.  There is a walking path along the entire Adelaide shore for your morning stroll.  

Please note that accommodation needs to be booked directly with The Retreat at West Beach Parks. There is a family caravan park next door with affordable cabins, and other nearby accommodation options at Glenelg.  

What happens to our 2020 accommodation bookings now the National Conference has been deferred to 2021?

The Retreat at West Beach Parks COVID-19 cancellation policy is that guests will receive a full refund should government COVID-19 regulations prevent them from travelling to stay with us.

The Retreat has reviewed their terms and conditions which have  different rules depending upon the type of booking. Some members have booked a cabin and paid a deposit and others have jumped on one of the special deals which require the full amount to be paid, so the outcomes were different. The terms and conditions relate to cancellations rather than changing a booking so they have provided the following advice. 

If you have booked and paid a deposit, the deposit can be credited to a deferred booking in 2021.

o   If you prefer to cancel and rebook, the deposit will be refunded less a $30 cancellation fee.

If you have booked a special deal and paid the full amount, the full payment can be deferred as a credit against a deferred booking in 2021.

o   There will be a small additional cost if the price goes up in the meantime.

o   If you cancel the booking, you will not receive any refund.

Where a group of members have shared the payment of a cabin booking but a different group of members are planning to occupy the cabin next year, you are advised to defer the booking and rework your payments amongst those who have paid already and those who intend to attend Conference in 2021.

The October 2021 bookings will not open until August this year but, if the resolution is passed on 30 April and the National Conference is deferred, members who have bookings can advise The Retreat at West Beach Parks in May of their intention to defer their booking and can confirm their booking later this year.
