Linux.conf.au 2003 | Venue
Linux.conf.au 2003 is being held at The University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth, Western Australia. The address of the campus is:
The University of Western Australia
Accommodation may be arranged though Currie Hall at The University of Western Australia: rooms have been set aside for attendees of LCA 2003. It is located on the corner of Mounts Bay Road and Winthrop Avenue. As part of the registration process you will be given the option of requesting the campus accommodation; you must follow up with them and submit the booking form.
Getting to the Campus
From the airport
There are four modes of transport to leave the airport. One is by air, but since you have just arrived, it would be silly to leave the state so soon. The rest are all by road: taxi ($30 to UWA from the domestic airport), bus to the city, or getting friends and family to pick you up.
Swan Taxis are on: 13 13 30. Yellow cabs are on: 13 19 24.
This map should give you an idea about the city shuttle. The City Shuttle can be contacted on +61 8 94794804.
From the city
The city is only about 2 kilometres from the university, and there are a number of buses that depart from the Perth Bus Port (at the 'front' of the city on the river) that run along Mounts Bay Road and Stirling Highway.
Using the bus
Tickets can be purchased on the bus (they are normally green in colour, and have the words "Transperth" on them). You can get a 10 ride "multirider" from almost any newsagency or post office. The campus is within the one zone radius of the city. Buses do not stop at every stop unless requested to do so (or it is a terminus, such as at the Bus Port): press the button (or rubber strip on the walls) to indicate you wish to alight. The right place to alert the driver when approching the campus is at the traffic lights on the corner of Hackett and Mounts Bay Road (ie, after you have had about 2 kms of winding along beside the river).
Transperth will help with bus enquiries by telephoning: 13 62 13 (in Western Australia only).
