“As an education day that is offered free by your organisation I feel that we are lucky to have the opportunity to attend. The food was great.  I trained at the Austin Hospital in Nursing so I am well aware of the history of the organisation, which has come a long way since they supported the patients on our ward.”

“It was an excellent day. A great variety in presenters, delicious food and loved the drinks afterward! A great variety of trade displays too.”

“It was a fabulous day and I thoroughly enjoyed – lovely to be out to the facility and attending events face to face again. The spread provided was wonderful, and all the exhibitors were happy to talk and help with my questions.”

“Everything is excellent. Free registration, great food, well learned and expert speakers, and freebies from the sponsors. This is one of the great conferences I attend. A big thank you for the organisers and sponsors. Thank you Independence Australia!”
