Melbourne is fortunate to be able to offer a wide variety of accommodation. There are many websites where you can book accommodation, however to make your choice a little easier CWA Victoria have put together some accommodation options that are within easy walking distance of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). From the city centre (known as the Central Business District, or more commonly 'CBD'!), you can catch a tram to the corner of Spencer and Flinders Lane and then walk across the bridge over the Yarra River to the MCEC – it won’t cost you anything as all tram rides within the CBD are free. However, once you cross this point you have to pay. For ease of access to the MCEC, CWA Victoria strongly recommend you try to book accommodation as close to the MCEC as possible.


Things you need to know:

  • Don’t try to book accommodation once you arrive in Melbourne, we are a busy city. You might find yourself staying miles away from the MCEC and have to pay public transport costs which are expensive.

  • Check-in time is usually from 2:00pm. If your flight arrives early in the morning and you want immediate access into your room, then pre-book your room (and pay for it) from the night before. This especially applies for our delegates and their guests travelling from overseas.

  • Check-out time is usually 10:00am. You can extend past this time if your flight is departing late. Hotels may charge additional fees for late check-outs.

  • Most hotel rates do not include any meals.

  • The rates quoted in this document are room only rates and are subject to change without notice - please note that they are only a guide, and should be taken as such.

  • Hotels will either require you to pay a deposit at time of booking or some sites require payment upfront. However, the hotels where we have set-up a direct link only require a deposit at time of booking and full payment either on check-in or day of departure.

  • We have secured special ACWW Conference rates especially for delegates & friends at: Pan Pacific Melbourne; Novotel Melbourne South Wharf, Crowne Plaza Melbourne; Holiday Inn on Flinders Lane, Crown Metropol & Crown Promenade.

  • All hotels have strict cancellation policies. Please be aware of these at time of booking.
