Continuum 9 will be held at ether, located at lower level, 265 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne.

If you were at Continuum 5, 6 or 7, you’ll remember the venue. Quiet, relaxed and modern, the convention centre is only a five minute walk from the State Library, Queen Victoria retail precinct (‘QV’), Bourke Street Shopping Mall and Melbourne’s Chinatown restaurants. Melbourne Central, with its shops and city loop train station, is just a block away. Catch a tram down Swanston Street to visit Federation Square and take a stroll along Southbank on the river.

For further information about ether and its facilities, please visit the official website.

ether is a wheelchair accessible venue. As the lift is mainly for staff use, they do ask that a staff member accompany you, but all staff are friendly and accommodating so it becomes no problem at all.
