Boarding at 1300 at Brooke Street Pier for a departure time of 1315. Returning to Brooke Street Pier at 1700.

Don’t be late, the ferry won’t wait!

We have a catamaran. It’s camouflaged. If you can find it in these photos, you ride for free.*

A direct trip between Brooke Street Pier and Mona takes around twenty-five minutes. The ferry is undercover and sails in rain, hail or shine.  $22 gets you the standard ticket to sit on sheep, frequent our onboard bars and admire the spunky staff in their spunky boiler suits.

Alternatively, upgrade to the Posh Pit (book direct with the ferry for Posh Pit tickets) and escape the riff-raff. Enjoy complimentary drinks, canapés and inflated egos in our exclusive lounge, bar and private deck. There’s table service too; rattle your jewellery for attention.

About the National Conference

The National Histology Conference in Australia commenced in 2003. Talks between the Victorian and New South Wales histology groups primarily led to the inaugural conference in Sydney. Since that first conference, the states with organised histology groups notionally agreed to hold the conference every two years rotating through those states.

2003 Sydney, NSW
2005 Melbourne, VIC
2006 Gold Coast, QLD
2009 Adelaide, SA
2011 Sydney, NSW
2013 Melbourne, VIC
2015 Brisbane, QLD

The event has grown in stature and professionalism with the venues, presenters and social engagements continuing to drive the conference to new levels of sophistication and probity.

This conference explores the potential for the histology groups to venture to states currently without organised histology groups. This provides one further step in the evolution of histology meetings by broadening to yet to be explored states and territories on a national level.

The Histology Group of Victoria will be the host of the conference, but unlike other National Histology Conferences will be joined by all states to create a more national approach to the first neutral location.
