2-6 November 2020
Due to the COVID 19 situation with lockdown and travel restrictions in Australia, the 2020 retreat will primarily be held online across five half days from 12:30 pm Monday 2nd November to 1 pm Friday 6th November (alternating between afternoon and morning). The first two days will be for the Student and ECR Retreat and the remainder is for the Main Retreat.
If the different restrictions in individual States permit, nodes within the same State could get together at the same venue with catering provided for lunch/morning or afternoon breaks. Details will be confirmed at a later date.
