NOTE: The "Tour Down Under" (international cycling race held in Adelaide) is being held in Adelaide 18-25th January 2009. Lance Armstrong has just announced that he will make his return to professional cycling at this event. As a result, accommodation in Adelaide is expected to book out fast.
Please consider booking your accommodation earlier than you would normally.
Adelaide has a huge range of accommodation that provide easy access to the University (where the conference will be held), in fact too many to name them. Here is a small selection to suit every budget (by no means an exhaustive list!):
There are a number of hostels that provide cheap accommodation in Adelaide city and a bit further out (e.g. near the beach). As a starting point, you could try:
- Adelaide Central YHA. 15 minute walk, $23 - $80 pn.
- Annie’s Place. 15 minute walk, $23 - $60 pn.
- Adelaide Travellers Inn. 20 minute walk, $25 - $90 pn.
Due to the "Tour Down Under" (international cycle race) hotels cannot offer ITRS special treatment on rooms or price. However, there are a numer of websites that offer the "best going rates":
Here is a list of some of the hotels close by (again, a range of prices!):
