Cairns airport is about six kilometres north of Cairns city. Palm Cove is about 30 km further north of the airport, and the JCU University campus is at Smithfield, about halfway in between the airport and Palm Cove. Port Douglas is about a further 30 minutes drive north of Palm Cove.
The main meeting will be in the Library Conference Room on the ground floor of the Library building. Smaller groups will meet in other rooms in the building. There is a map of the Cairns campus, disguised as a Room Locator, at http://www.jcu.edu.au/unimap/cairnsroomfinder.shtml
The CAUL dinner will be held at Restaurant Blue, Clarion Hotel, Palm Cove http://www.great-barrier-reef.com/clarion_resort/palm_cove_resort.html
An informal dinner has been arranged at L'Unico Trattoria, Trinity Beach http://www.cairnsrestaurants.com/listk-o.htm#L
For transport between accommodation venues and the university, a mixture of taxis and private cars should be adequate.
The cost of a taxi from the airport to Palm Cove is approximately $40, and the local buses approximately $8. Courtesy transfers are available at most accommodation options, not just the high end of the market. It is also possible to hire cars in Palm Cove as well as at the airport.
CAUL members who intend to be tourists as well as delegates would be well advised to hire a car from the airport. There are the usual good range of options and prices. It is an easy and uncomplicated drive to Palm Cove, the city, the University, or indeed anywhere.
Parking at JCU.
Parking should not be a problem. As you enter the campus, there are carparks on either side of the road. Ignore them. At the end of the carpark on the left is an obscure sign and road saying library. Follow that road into the wilderness, and beware the severe speed bumps. Evetually on your right is another carpark, which is the closest one to the library building. There are plenty of parking spaces and they are all free.
The library building is straight ahead, with the entrance on the other side. The Conference Room is at the opposite end to the entrance.
On the way to the library building entrance you pass Jac's cafe, which has good coffee, breakfasts, etc.
While we can't specify where members will stay, we can recommend. Palm Cove, which is very attractive, is at the 4/5 star end of the Cairns accommodation market, particularly for apartments and resort-type accommodation. There is also good quality accommodation at Trinity Beach, which is nearer to the University. The biggest other options are north in Port Douglas, or south in the Cairns city area, both of which have everything from backpackers to 5 star hotels. There is only one pretty basic but perfectly acceptable motel near the University. We are sure that Palm Cove and Trinity Beach offer a variety of accommodation options that will suit the tastes of all university librarians.
