2018 COAT National Conference
7 - 8 June, 2018I QT Canberra, ACT

Venue Information

As Canberra was announced as number three in Lonely Planet's top ten places to travel (in the world) in 2018 beating out the usual suspects, Sydney and Melbourne, it is no surprise that COAT seized the opportunity to show off this often neglected cultural destination. Canberra is rich in history, culture and entertainment and has something for every kind of visitor.

Recent revitalisation efforts have given Canberra a new lease of life, establishing a truly contemporary and unique sense of style with boutique precincts emerging throughout the city, bursting with cool bars, cafes, restaurants and lucky for us... Conference venues.

It is with much excitement that we announce that 2018 COAT National Conference was held at:

The QT Canberra
1 London Circuit, Canberra, ACT 2601

About The QT Canberra

The Sydney Morning Herald's 'Weekends Away' Reviewer, Veronique Mandray, recently spoke candidly about her experience at the QT Canberra.

"What was the iconic but dated '70's vintage Rydges Lakeside Hotel' has morphed into the QT Canberra, a sleek, designer establishment in London Circuit with wit and attitude. After a $6 million renovation and the development of the nearby precinct, New Acton, the rebranded property blends perfectly with its updated surrounds.

It is a luxury boutique hotel with a designer streak, whose pledge of offering an 'intriguing yet relaxing experience' is fully delivered, along with service that shines."


Undercover parking is available to hotel guests staying overnight within the hotel, at $15.00 per night.

*Please note: Car parking is subject to availability and prices are subject to change without notice.

If you are not staying at the QT Canberra, there is an alternative parking lot directly across from the Hotel
