This year, Continuum will be at the Rydges on Swanston, 701 Swanston Street, Carlton.

Facilities: The Rydges is a wheelchair accessible venue and complimentary wifi access is available in public areas throughout. The majority of the convention will be programmed in the ground floor convention space although we will also have some items in the fourth floor space. For more information on the Rydges, please see their website.

Transport: The Rydges on Swanston is just outside one of the newer accessible tram stops; a large number of trams run up Swanston St to terminate a few blocks north of the Rydges at Melbourne University. Routes 1 and 8 continue further north to Lygon St and the northern suburbs. Melbourne Central is the nearest train station, approximately 1 km south of our venue. For more information on public transport in Melbourne, please visit Metlink Melbourne.
