The 44th annual conference of the Australian and New Zealand Map Society, Encircled by sea, will be held in Wollongong, New South Wales, September 7 – 9, 2016.
Australia and New Zealand share a common history of exploration and settlement along the coastal fringes. The 2016 conference will explore the European discovery and gradual mapping and settlement of Australia and New Zealand and the significant role explorers, surveyors and cartographers have played in shaping and documenting the changing coastal landscape over more than 200 years. The conference program also acknowledges the 400th anniversary of the landing of Dirk Hartog in his vessel the Eendracht off the coast of Shark Bay, on 25 October 1616.
The provisional programme is now 2016 Provisional-Programme
