Ville Resort-Casino
Townsville, Queensland


The ASBAQ 2016 Conference Secretariat has confirmed rooms at the conference venue for the benefit of Conference delegates. You are encouraged to secure your accommodation through the Conference Secretariat to ensure that you receive the negotiated competitive rates. Accommodation can be booked via the registration form or by contacting the Conference Secretariat.


Accommodation will not be confirmed until a deposit of one night’s tariff is received by credit card or full payment by Electronic Funds Transfer and Cheque. This deposit will be forwarded to your hotel and will be credited to your room account. Delegates must settle the balance of their account with the hotel concerned upon check out. If accommodation deposits are not received by 22 April 2016 your room will be released back to the hotel. The Conference Secretariat does not take responsibility for accommodation if deposits are not received by this date.

Deadline for accommodation bookings

The Conference Secretariat must return all unsold rooms to the hotels/apartments after 22 April 2016, therefore accommodation bookings after that date cannot be guaranteed. The rates quoted are only valid for bookings made by 22 April 2016.


No accommodation deposits will be refunded after 22 April 2016. Delegates who confirm an accommodation booking with a credit card or who have paid in full and who cancel after 22 April 2016 or delegates, who fail to arrive on the specified date, will be charged for the entire cost of their accommodation.

Rates quoted are:

Ville Resort-Casino
Deluxe Room $154
Resort Room $176
Executive Room $198

Late bookings

Late bookings can be made through the Conference Secretariat after 22 April 2016 but are subject to availability, and credit card details are required to secure the reservation.

Early arrival

Some international flights arrive in Townsville in the very early morning. As check in is at 1400 at most hotels, your room may not be ready for immediate occupation if you arrive early. Whilst hotels will do everything possible to accommodate early arrivals, if you wish to be guaranteed immediate occupation you can pay an extra day’s tariff for the night before you are due to arrive. If you wish to take this precaution, please advise the Conference Secretariat on the registration form so that we can notify the hotel.

Late arrival

Please indicate if you will arrive at your hotel after 1800. Failure to do so might result in your booking being cancelled and your room given to someone else.

Change of booking

Any change in booking must be made in writing to the Conference Secretariat and not directly to the hotel.
