Hotel LocationDarling Harbour / Hotel Map

The Novotel Hotel is located on the Western side of Darling Harbour, near the Convention Centre and Casino. It can easily be reached by the monorail that connects the Central Business District (CBD) hotels with Darling Harbour. The monorail travels in an anti clockwise direction, trains depart every five (5) minutes and the cost is A$3.00. There are Monorail stops in or near the Hilton Hotel, the Park Regis Hotel, the All Seasons Hotel, the Novotel as well as other places.

The Novotel can also be reached on foot. Depending on the walker's fitness and the number of red lights encountered, the walk should not take more than 20 to 30 minutes from anywhere within the monorail loop (NOTE: The author has not done this walk for many years, so the information is not 100% reliable!)

Please follow this link for a larger map showing the Sydney CBD and the possibility to download it.

Working Dinner

The location for the working dinner will only be revealed on the night.

A Special Event - The Sydney Mardi Gras Festival

Sydney's Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras festival is second only to the carnivale in Rio de Janeiro. It is a celebration of gay culture with art and performances during February culminating in a night of outrageous entertainment, when Sydney's extroverted gay community dons leather and lace for a noisy and colourful (but peaceful) parade along Oxford St. on Saturday, 4 March starting at 8pm. This is an event not to be missed, but recommended only for the liberal minded. More information is available here.
