In recent times, the effect of distance has been dramatically changed with the advent of immediate communications systems as well as cost effective travel. Regional communities can now be serviced in a multitude of different ways.

An illustrious set of keynote speakers, whose work responds to this mandate, has been invited. In addition, there will be a rich range of associated tours and events that will explore the extraordinary locality of the beautiful Cairns region.
