Trainees at NSC 2024

Trainee Day - Friday 6 September, 2024

Join us for an exclusive day dedicated to trainees, packed with workshops, networking, and growth opportunities tailored just for you. We have arranged this program to be on a separate day from the lectures and plenaries to enable you to connect with your fellow colleagues while still attending the scientific program. And to cap off the day’s excitement, embark on a relaxing boat cruise, unwinding amidst serene waters while cementing friendships forged during the session. Don’t miss this unique blend of learning and leisure – reserve your spot today!

Trainee boat cruise

Take a short walk from the convention centre and join your fellow Trainees along with a few of the conference’s invited speakers aboard the fully crewed, historic 65ft pearling lugger, Streeter.

Take in the sights and marine life of Darwin Harbour, then enjoy the breathtaking sunset from the deck of this award winning vessel.
