“Spring is a fantastic time of year to visit Western Australia. We encourage everyone coming to Perth for the Joint Australasian Sexual Health and HIV&AIDS Conference to take some time to explore our vibrant city and breathtaking regions. September sees the State explode with colour for wildflower season, and the Kings Park Festival is a great way to discover this, right in the heart of Perth city. In the North West the Shinju Matsuri Festival lights up Broome in a kaleidoscope of colour and cultural immersion, while in the South West indulge in quality local produce and award winning wines; discover ancient forests and the pristine Indian Ocean.
I hope that everyone attending the Joint Australasian Sexual Health and HIV&AIDS Conference goes home having experienced how incredible our State is.” - Gareth Martin, Chief Executive Officer, Perth Convention Bureau
