Water Research Laboratory Field trip

We are offering a complimentary field trip to the UNSW Water Research Laboratory (WRL) at Manly Vale on Wednesday afternoon, as part of the conference program.  The field trip will include a short tour of the Manly Hydraulics Lab (MHL) and a stop at North Head for a picturesque view of Sydney.

The WRL is a world-leading academic research and consulting laboratory which endeavours to tackle the most challenging and pressing water-engineering problems faced by the world today relating to water and the environment.

Based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and part of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UNSW, it is a globally-esteemed laboratory which spans four hectares and is home to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment and personnel comprised of the most experienced and creative problem solvers in their respective areas of research and industry.

WRL’s expertise extends (but is not limited) to:

  • Estuarine, coastal and ocean hydrodynamics and sediment transport
  • Coastal zone monitoring, foreshore protection and management
  • River flow and floodplain management
  • Groundwater research and management
  • Civil engineering hydraulics
  • Catchment hydrology
  • Environmental studies and climate adaptation
  • Wetland restoration

There will be a complimentary bus transfer from the conference venue to Manly Vale and return in time for the conference dinner. Afternoon tea will be provided at the WRL.

You can reserve a place for this field trip when you register to attend the conference.
