We are really looking forward to welcoming you to beautiful Sydney. This page provides useful information about various types of accommodation in the Coogee area, where most of the conference will take place. December means summer in Australia, making Coogee a most popular destination, so whatever you decide upon please book your accommodation early, so you don't miss out on nearby accommodation!

Boutique-style accommodation

A number of Boutique-style rooms have been set aside for ICMI attendees until 6 weeks before the conference:

  • District View Rooms at $210 per room per night
  • Ocean View Rooms at $250 per room per night (only a few of these!)

In order to be eligible for ICMI 2013 rates, you will have to either call on +61 2 9665 0000 or send them an email on, and quote group confirmation number #285809. Please note that you cannot book online with these rates.

If you are sensitive to noise (especially if staying Friday/Saturday night), please check with the hotel about this as they have rooms near the front and back of the hotel.
