Next State History Conference
Royal Western Australia Historical Society
Annual State History Conference of Affiliated Societies
Hosted by the Denmark Historical Society
Denmark WA September 9th – 11th
Plan a trip to Denmark on the beautiful south coast for a wonderful weekend of history, heritage, food, wine and good company.
The State History Conference will be held from Friday, September 9th to Sunday, September 11th.
Venue for the conference and dinner will be the Riverside Club on the banks of the picturesque Denmark River.
New Format: We are trying a new format this year with a mixer and registration Friday evening, talks split between Saturday morning and Sunday morning and excursions on Saturday afternoon. We are planning several workshops for Sunday afternoon. These will not be included as part of the conference and will incur an extra fee as optional extras.
Saturday’s Excursions: You can visit local museums, historic sites or see contemporary movies.
Stay a little longer: Discover the delights that Denmark has to offer - and plan to extend your visit to take in Walpole, Albany and Mount Barker as well.
The number of attendees will be limited because the Riverside Club has an absolute capacity of 120, both for the conference and the dinner. Book early as attendance will be first come, first served.
Pepper & Salt, Denmark’s premier restaurant, will be providing a fixed menu, 3 course dinner with options for those with special dietary needs.
Registration and dinner costs are yet to be finalised.
Accommodation and travel is for you to organise so don’t hesitate. Contact the Denmark Visitor Centre on 08 9848 2648 or via http://www.denmark.com.au/ for their advice and bookings. Denmark has two motels: The Denmark Hotel right in town and the Koorabup Motel on the western edge of the town. There is also a huge range of Airbnb’s, and other short term rental accommodation, best booked through one of the online booking services.
Public transport is available to Denmark via Bunbury by bus and train, or direct to Albany. Limited flights are available between Perth and Albany via Regional Express Airlines. The RWAHS is looking at booking a 50 seat coach leaving Nedlands Friday morning and returning Sunday afternoon. This may be an option if you are staying in town, but will be difficult for anyone staying further out. If you are interested in this option, please let Nick Drew (email@example.com) know ASAP so he can determine whether to go ahead and book the coach.
Full details and registration will be available at the end of April. In the meantime register your interest via firstname.lastname@example.org to help us estimate numbers.
The Denmark Historical Society looks forward to welcoming you to Denmark in September this year. It will be a conference to remember!
