A range of activities will be on offer for partners and accompanying guests, including:
Welcome Reception at Peppers Silo Hotel
Thursday 19th November - 6.00pm to 8.30pm
Launceston is Tasmania's second major city and a vibrant hub for food, wine, culture and nature. Among Australia's oldest cities, it has one of our best-preserved early cityscapes with elegant Colonial and Victorian architecture and century-old parks. Bringing history to life on the banks of the idyllic Tamar River is the unique, characterful Peppers Silo Hotel. The heritage building dates back to the 1960's and features four large grain silos, which have now been converted to a sophisticated nine storey hotel and function centre.
The Peppers Silo Hotel is the perfect setting for the Welcome Reception, where guests will enjoy innovative cuisine incorporating fresh Tasmanian ingredients and a selection of local wines. The Welcome Reception is included in the cost of Full Registration, and additional tickets may be purchased for partners and Day Registrants.
