PyCon Australia dinner cruise and reception
Submitted on 2012-07-30 00:00
We're very pleased to be able to announce the final, hitherto unannounced part of PyCon Australia 2012 -- our conference dinner this year is being held offsite at Peppermint Bay, near Woodbridge, some 30km to the south of Hobart.
Taking advantage of the waterfront location of our conference venue, we'll be starting the evening with a one-hour twilight cruise on the Navigators catamaran, MV Marana (with your choice of indoor seating, or outdoor viewing decks); following the cruise, Peppermint Bay will present a three-course dinner, featuring fresh produce from the local region and around Tasmania. Once that's done, we'll take you back to Wrest Point aboard the Marana.
We hope the dinner will be an excellent centrepiece of the conference this year, which will help make PyCon Australia 2012 a memorable event.
For more information about our dinner cruise and reception, or PyCon Australia in general, please see our website.
