Victoria is thrilled to be hosting the Inaugural Wounds Australian Conference in Melbourne, 9-12 November 2016 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The program looks fantastic with many new and thought provoking topics including wounds in general practice, violet traumatic wounds and surgical site dehiscence as well as providing cutting edge research and where we are in the State of Play in wound management.

Our organising committee has been working for over 18 months to bring the conference together and what a dynamic and committed team they are! The full team has been meeting monthly since the announcement of the conference as well as attending multiple site visits and sub committees continue to work tirelessly on the scientific program, social events, budgeting and marketing to ensure our delegates are not only well informed but very well looked after. We have been beautifully supported by the truly professional team at Conference Logistics: Leanne, Sam and Nicole and are so very excited to be bringing this conference to you.

We have a few surprises up our sleeve to entertain you and hope that you enjoy the conference as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you.

This will be a fantastic opportunity for you to update your knowledge, mix with international speakers, trade and delegates and what better place to enjoy this experience than Melbourne? The gateway to Victoria's world class wineries, natural springs and spectacular coastline, discover Melbourne’s secret laneways and rooftops, experience the cultural hub of Federation Square, the iconic MCG and the Nation stopping excitement of the Spring racing carnival. Join us to experience Melbourne's playful side from its creative exciting city centre, world class arts and cultural heritage and indulge in the richness and diversity of Melbourne’s food and wine.

Accommodation options abound for delegates ranging from resort-styled luxury, to charming boutique hotels and self-contained apartments.

If you have any questions in regards to the conference, please don't hesitate to contact the planning committee by emailing

Kind regards

Organising Committee Chair
