Conference attendees who wish to collect specimens must obtain their own permits or licences to do so. See below for helpful links.
Note that you will need more than one permit /licence in some cases: e.g., for collecting rare/protected plants, marine and terrestrial organisms, in National Parks and State Forests.
It often takes at least 6 weeks from time of submission to granting of a permit or licence, so apply well ahead of time.
Marine animals and vegetation
Conference attendees who wish to examine collections at local museums and herbaria should contact the appropriate collection managers ahead of time to ensure there will be space for them.
