Conference Highlights

International and National Guest Speakers share their insights

We are excited to invite you to our 2024 conference, which will be held on 15-17 August in Cairns and marks 11 years since we first started gathering.

This is an annual event and aims to stimulate and push our thinking so we, family law professionals from the Pacific region, are challenged to focus on better meeting the needs of the children and families we serve in the family court process.

Tourism Tropical North Queensland

Cairns and Great Barrier Reef is a tropical region encouraging genuine connections to nature and each other.

Five-star hotels and resorts line the waterfront of Cairns, Palm Cove, Port Douglas, and our tropical islands.

Create great moments in the oldest rainforest, choose your own adventure on the largest coral reef and learn from two indigenous cultures.

Cairns Convention


Cairns Convention

The Cairns Convention Centre is a world-class venue located in the heart of Tropical North Queensland, where the rainforest meets the reef. The Centre offers a range of flexible spaces for conferences, exhibitions, and events.



Our guest speakers possess exceptional levels of knowledge and expertise that are widely recognised in their field. We are confident their presence will be a highlight for attendees.



Social events and catchups play an important role in gathering for each annual conference - social drinks are available at the conclusion of each day.

When staying in Cairns, the only place to be is on the waterfront at the Crystalbrook Flynn, amongst all the action with both harbour and city views.
