We are excited to offer the following social programs during the Australian Bushfire Building Conference:


Welcome Reception

The conference kicks off with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday, 14 September at 5.30pm. 

Attendance at the Welcome Reception is included in the conference registration price

Networking Dinner

Come along to our networking dinner on Thursday, 15 September at The Lookout Echo Point.  Perched on the edge of the Blue Mountains Echo Point escarpment, with breathtaking views of the valley and Three Sisters, unrivaled by any other venue in the mountains; The Lookout Echo Point is a world-class destination to drink & dine over amazing views.

Dinner tickets are available from an Early Bird price of $110 and partners are welcome to attend. This price includes transport to the dinner venue and back to the Fairmont Resort, a 2-course meal and beverages. 

Dinner and Blue Mountains Stargazing

Extend your stay after the conference and join us for a dinner on Friday night (16 September) in a Katoomba restaurant, followed by the award-winning stargazing experience at Wentworth Falls Lookout, guided by astrophysicist Dimitri Douchin, PhD. 

Tickets are available at $180 and include transport to a Katoomba dinner venue, 2-course dinner and the Blue Mountains Stargazing experience. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate before our bus returns you to your accommodation around 9.30pm.

Blue Mountains Explorer Day Trip

Why not make it a mini holiday and stay for the weekend after the conference?

Our Blue Mountains Explorer Day trip on Saturday, 17 September will take you to experience Scenic World, home to the world’s steepest railway.  Our guided Scenic World experience will provide the ultimate open-air adventure with epic rides and endless views of the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and Jamison Valley.

After Scenic World, we’ll head to Mountain Culture Beer Co, the #1 rated brewery in Australia on UnTappd. Enjoy a light lunch and a tasting paddle of four beers from their ever-changing selection and soak in the vibes of the brewhouse in a historic building.

We’ll then make our way to the Megalong Valley with stops at some lesser-known mountain highlights along the way. The wineries there have the best views of any in NSW – gaze up at towering cliffs as you sample several cool climate wines and enjoy a generous cheese and charcuterie platter.

After that you can relax and enjoy the ride as we take you back to our starting point.

This trip starts at 9am and finishes at 5pm. Tickets are available for $220 per person. (*minimum numbers required for this tour to go ahead)
