Accommodation

 

Please note we strongly advise on early booking of your hotel venue. Sydney in summer is extremely popular at the best of times but especially during summer and whilst best efforts will be made to ensure accommodation is available, we cannot guarantee accommodation within walking distance to the venue if not booked early. Further, this adds to the price of hotels - APOS is held a little after the peak Festival season but hotel prices can be expensive so early preparation is advised.

Some popular websites useful for booking hotels are:

                                        Expedia             LIDO            Wotif

                       *Please be sure to compare all three for the best rate*

Below are recommendations of various places near to the venue and/or which are of a sufficient discount to be of good value for Sydney. We recommend checking for regular discounts offered by various places which vary from time to time.

In addition, various websites offer discount rates so please search around for the best deal. The recommended  backpackers for cheap rooms is the YHA in Central, a short train trip to Circular Quay.

If you are having problems booking hotels, please contact the secretariat.
