The Conference Design Committee is pleased to announce an outstanding venue for the Conference Dinner at NMC2019: The Pialligo Estate, which is located in the semi-rural enclave of Pialligo, in Canberra. The Estate includes a vineyard and winery, as well as olive grove, smokehouse, market and herb gardens and has the capacity to provide NMC delegates with a high quality meal in a relaxed and informal setting.

Dinner will include access to Garden Pavilions, at which various dinner components will be prepared “live” (e.g. smokehouse produce, paella, barbeque, dessert/cheese). Vegetarian options will be included.

Delegates will be able to mingle freely in the garden setting of the function area.
