Conference Venue

Ask any Victorian and they’ll be aware of the Melbourne Cricket Ground’s status as the home of sport.

But the MCG is more than just a sports venue. It’s a place where memories are made and childhood dreams come alive. There are fleeting moments at the ‘G that stay with you forever.

Steeped in a rich history, the MCG was established in 1853, less than 20 years after the founding of Melbourne and is often described as the beating heart of this fantastic city.

Nestled in Yarra Park and about a 10-minute walk from the heart of the city, we are pleased to present the Diversity in Disaster conference at this iconic venue and look forward to you joining us there.
