The Conference was held at The Wheeler Centre which is in the precinct of the State Library of Victoria. The establishment of The Wheeler Centre is in response to Melbourne's status as a UNESCO City of Literature. Melbourne was the second city in the world - and the first in the southern hemisphere - to be honoured by UNESCO. The first was Edinburgh.
So for those of you who may not have visited Wheeler, I took some pictures... just to give you a feel of the place.

The Green Room was used by the conference for informal conversations with guest speakers and "Unconferences" - you could put your unprogrammed offering on a white-board.
Green Room - Southern end
Green Room - Northern end
Green Room - Kitchen doors
and, finally, I thought this banquette was designer cute and smart
All in all, the Wheeler Centre provides
functional spaces for the City of Melbourne.
