The Wombat Conference wouldn’t be complete without a chance to socialise! On 17th September, there will be a Quiz Night with the Conference Dinner on the 18th September. This will also be held at the University of Adelaide, consisting of a three course meal and drinks package with light entertainment. A fantastic opportunity to network with the widespread wombat community gathering in Adelaide.
