Local information

This page contains information about the local amenities, activities and eateries easily accessible from the conference venue, for those occasional moments when you are not doing mathematics or attending conference events!

Getting to St George’s

You will arrive at Perth Airport either at the domestic terminals or the international terminals, which are on opposite sides of the runway.

There are public buses and an airport shuttle into the Perth City Centre, but these will require changing and getting another bus out to UWA.

Therefore the simplest way to get to St. George’s is to get a taxi, but it will cost approximately $50.

As there are likely to be delegates arriving at similar times, we have setup a “ride-share” page where you can try to contact others.

Simply go to the appropriate link below, enter your name and select the approximate time of arrival. I have divided both Saturday and Sunday into 2-hour blocks, giving a total of 24 options from which to choose (you may need to click the button “Show all 24 options”). You can also leave a comment if you wish to add more precise details. If others are arriving at approximately the same time, then they can contact you directly, and you can exchange precise details and set up a meeting time and place.

YOU MUST PRESS “SAVE” AFTER ENTERING YOUR DETAILS

Please note that this is only to allow you to contact others and self-organise a shared taxi from the airport, and there are no guarantees. Please make sure you double-check all details before agreeing to meet up – in particular, do not confuse the domestic terminal with the international terminal as you cannot easily transit from one to the other, and
do not confuse Saturday arrival with Sunday arrival.

Around UWA

Many of these locations and points of interest are listed on the conference map – zoom in for closer details. The page is not password-protected, but it seems that if your browser is already associated with some Google service, you may randomly be asked to re-enter your password.

There is also a detailed PDF campus map.  St George’s is in the top right at map reference J1, while the conference venue is in and around the Monadelphous Integrated Learning Centre, which is adjacent to the Mathematics building (between E6 and F7).

There are many ways to get from St George’s to Monadelphous, but here is one possible route (see me cycling this route), though a pedestrian could cut across the lawns to make it shorter.

Other than the campus itself, there are three nearby areas in easy walking distance, each with a small selection of shops and restaurants, but enough to cover most requirements for a short stay in Perth.

  1. Hampden Road – A small strip with a number of restaurants, cafes, boutique-type shops, hairdressers, two chemists, a Vintage Cellars liquor store and a corner-shop style mini-supermarket with long hours and a wide selection (though high prices).
  2. Broadway/Stirling Highway – Located at the corner of Broadway and Stirling Highway there are a handful of cafes and restaurants, a bakery, two bank branches (Commonwealth and ANZ).
  3. Broadway Fair – Located further along Broadway (away from Stirling Highway) and close to the conference venue, is Broadway Fair, which is a small but busy shopping centre. It has an IGA supermarket, a Post Office branch, a pub, a liquor store, a chemist, a hardware store, an Asian supermarket, a barber, a shoe repair place, and a number of cheap student-oriented restaurants.
