The 2019 Australian Coastal Councils Conference is an opportunity for coastal planners and decision makers to share information on the latest developments in coastal planning and management from around Australia. It is also an opportunity to play an active role in national coastal policy development.

The theme for the conference is Coastal Challenges – Smarter Solutions and the program will feature topics of significant interest to coastal councils and communities, including:

  • Australian Coastal Cities – Climate Risks and Responses
  • Coastal Policy Proposals for the 2019 Federal Election
  • Smart City Strategies for Coastal Regions
  • Smart Coastal Tourism Strategies
  • Ocean Safety and Beach Management

The 2019 conference is being hosted by Kiama Municipal Council at the scenic coastal town of Kiama. It will be the first time the conference has been held on the NSW south coast. The Kiama region is located between the Illawarra escarpment and the Pacific Ocean and has exceptional natural features including outstanding local beaches, rainforests, rivers and waterfalls.  It is located on the national transport corridor, with Sydney Airport a 90-minute drive away and Canberra a 2½ hour drive. The venue for the conference is The Pavilion Kiama, 2 Bong Bong Street, Kiama. It is situated on a headland overlooking the famous Kiama Lighthouse and Surf Beach. The Pavilion is within walking distance of a range of local accommodation facilities.
