The 2020 Coast to Coast Conference will be held at the Pullman Cairns International, 27 – 30 July.
Welcome to the 15th Coast to Coast National Conference – the Australian Coastal Society’s biennial national coastal management conference.
You are part of a large and diverse community of organisations and individuals involved in Australia’s coastal zone, or perhaps the coast of another nation. This conference is an essential part of your calendar whether you work in government, research, natural resource management, a community organisation or NGO, if you provide consultant services or represent a coastal industry.
We have designed Coast to Coast 2020 to encourage deep dialogue, inspiring presentations, rich stories, informative excursions, fruitful workshops, opportunities to strengthen connections and build new ones, and time for great conversations.
We encourage you to put the dates in your diary and join our mailing list through our website. We also invite you and your organisation to consider what you might contribute to the conference, for example by:
- Registering yourself, and supporting other key staff to attend
- Presenting a spoken paper or a poster, or other display,
- Convening a workshop or discussion,
- Showcasing your organisation’s or business’s work with an exhibition booth,
- Chipping in to help support this important event as a Sponsor
We are all in this together. Please share the excitement and rising groundswell of interest and energy as we prepare to welcome you to Cairns in 2020

The 6th International EcoSummit Congress – EcoSummit 2020 – Building a sustainable and desirable future: Adapting to a changing land and sea-scape , will take place at The Gold Coast Convention Centre, Gold Coast, Australia, from 21st – 25th June 2020. EcoSummit 2020 will have a focus on coastal and marine ecosystems including adjacent terrestrial ecosystems and all habitats that are integrated within those ecosystems, including river networks, wetlands and catchments. We expect all aspects of environmental modelling, engineering, science, and policy to be covered under the focus of climate adaptation and the need for developing socio-economic and environmental resilience and sustainable prosperity around the world. Further focus will be placed on fragile systems that are more likely to suffer the consequences of climate change and anthropogenic pressure such as islands, coastal communities and arid landscapes.
