Perth, Western Australia

Participate in the 11th International Oat Conference OAT2022 run by the Grain Industry Association of Western Australia and visit stunning Western Australia, offering an incredible range of unique experiences, natural beauty and adventures.

The capital of Western Australia, Perth, is a sophisticated and vibrant multicultural Indian Ocean beach and river city with a population of two million people.  Perth is on the same time zone as Singapore and easily accessible via direct flights from London (18.5 hour flight), Dubai (11 hour flight), the major Southeast Asian capital cities (Singapore 5 hour flight), Sydney or Melbourne (4.5 hour flight).

Western Australia’s major oat growing regions are east and southeast of the Perth city, easily accessible within a two hour drive. October is spring time in Western Australia, approximately four to six weeks prior to the start of the oat harvesting season.  Temperatures usually range between 20 to 25 degrees celcius during the day; light jackets, outdoor hats and sunglasses are recommended.

The OAT2022 Conference will be held at Crown Perth, Burswood, Western Australia.  Located on the picturesque banks of the Swan River, just minutes from the Perth CBD and both domestic and international airports. Crown Perth and the surrounding Burswood entertainment precinct is renowned for its’ world-class sporting and entertainment facilities, premium restaurants and range of accommodation options. Participants in OAT2022 may choose to stay onsite at Crown Perth, or make independent accommodation arrangements within walking distance at other nearby hotels or serviced apartments in the Burswood entertainment complex.

In the spirit of reconciliation GIWA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
