The one-of-its-kind Gala event will be held on the evening of Saturday 25 August at the Lennox Head Community Centre. Complete with band, scrumptious food, awards and a ceremony that in itself will make you burn with pride to be a naturopath! We are master-minding the decorations now.. chandeliers may make an appearance.. EXCITING 😉
Lennox Head Community Center is in the heart of Lennox Head is approximately 15 mins from Ballina airport and 55 minutes from the Gold Coast airport. All the major car rental companies are located at the airport and it is an easy drive to the venue. Alternatively, you could arrange to catch a shuttle service. For Ballina Airport shuttles head here: http://ballinabyronairport.com.au/to-from-the-airport/transport-options/.
Lennox Head Community Center is at 1 Mackney Lane, Lennox Head. That's right.. right on the beach.. nearly 😉
There is ample accommodation available at Lennox Head, Ballina, Byron Bay and surrounds. Please visit and contact the team at Discover Ballina Information Centre who will be available to help you book accommodation, airport transfers and answer any of your travel questions. Please ask them if your place of stay is within walking distance of the venue or if you will need to arrange other transport.
At the ANS 2018 we are trying something different in-line with our 'festival of naturopathy'.
Instead of catering for our delegation as normal conferences do - which is both costly for the organisers and the ticket price - we instead decided to let delegates source their own food.
We thought this would fit everyone's needs better - dietary and budget wise.
Everyone can choose what to eat and how much they want to spend.
We will have food trucks on site that will be serving healthy and nutritious food covering GF, DF, Vegetarian and Vegan options, as well as a Chai Tent and Juice Bar.
Alternatively, you can bring a packed lunch onsite (if you are aiming to be very penny-smart) and if there is anything further you need, the beach boulevard and shops are literally across the street.
ANTA 1 point per 1 hour for the whole program = 22 points
ANPA 1 point per seminar hour but capped at 12 points across the whole weekend = 12 points
ATMS 1 point per learning hour
SNTR 1 point per 1 hour for the whole program = 22 points
