- Get involved
Just like all the RAA National Conferences, Kumuwuki / Big Wave is being held in regional location, and just like all the previous conferences, people have concerns about how they are going to get to the conference and how they’ll get around once they arrive.
We’ve taken the hassle out of getting there with different transport options to suit you:
Delegates can travel direct from the Adelaide Airport to their accommodation on the Kumuwuki Airport Shuttle.
Allow two hours to make the full trip with stop offs.
Tickets $27.50 one way ($55 return), buy through the Kumuwuki Store
Adelaide Airport to Goolwa, stopping via Victor Harbor, Port Elliot and Middleton
Departs Thursday 18 October at 10am and 1pm
Both services arrive in time for delegates to check into their accommodation and make their way into Goolwa for the opening plenary at 4pm (jump on the Kumuwuki Town Shuttle)
Goolwa to Adelaide Airport, stopping via Middleton, Port Elliot and Victor Harbor
Departs Sunday 21 October at 2pm and 3pm
Why not take your time and have the chance to enjoy the journey? Fly in Wednesday or Thursday morning and take the chance to experience Adelaide - the iconic and vibrant Adelaide Central Markets are a 6 minutes walk (500m) from the Premier Stateliner bus stop.
The trip from the Adelaide airport is only about a 15 minute drive. You can catch a taxi from the terminal, or jump on the Skylink, a regular scheduled bus service between Adelaide Airport and the Adelaide CBD, including set-downs and pick-ups from most major city hotels.

Hiring a car becomes a very affordable and convenient option if you are travelling with three or four others. It means you can get down to Goowla in less than 90 minutes.
A number of hire car companies operate out of the Adelaide airport.

It can be nerve wracking travelling to a country town that you’ve never been to before and wondering how you are going to get around. But don't worry. You will be able to easily move from where they are staying to the conference hub and between conference venues.
Most venues are within walking distance
The Kumuwuki Town Shuttle will run its loop between Goolwa and Victor Harbor, via Middleton and Port Elliot, several times each day.
It’s free - you just need to show your delegate lanyard to get on board.
To ensure we can meet everyone’s needs, send an email to email@example.com to let us know if you plan to use the Kumuwuki Town Shuttle, and where you are staying.
In addition to the Town Shuttle, there is a free shuttle service from the Goolwa Wharf for people booked into performances that are located too far from the wharf for walking.
Bus Timetable (town and performance shuttles) - in the While in Goolwa section of the Program Guide.

If you went to Junction 2010 in Launceston, you may have experienced first hand the refreshing walk during the sunshine (daytime temperatures in October average 21oC) to the conference venues sprinkled throughout the town.
Most conference venues are within 5 minutes walking distance, some are only 30 seconds, and for those that are further out shuttle buses will run to get delegates to sessions on time. You don’t have to worry about whether there will be room on the bus as there will be enough seats for everyone who can fit into the session.
For those that are staying just a little out of town, cycling is a great option. Goolwa is flat, making cycling easy, and there are plenty of bike ways - including the scenic (and flat) Encounter Bikeway which runs all the way from Encounter Bay, through Victor Harbor, Port Elliot and Middleton to Goolwa, with most of the bikeway taking in coastal view.
Bikes can be hired from:

There are a number of local taxi companies. Taxi’s are not available to hail from the street, but you can phone and book if you prefer a drive from your accommodation to the conference hub and back again.
