  3. Conference Vision • A View to What's in Store: • In the Moomba spirit of fun and getting together over the  long weekend the 2012 Conference will unite around a thousand District 9800 Rotarians to enjoy food, fun, entertainment and fellowship, as well as exchange ideas, gain inspiration and share with the community what can be done to solve social issues.   • Held in the heart of Rotary District 9800, the cosmopolitan and culturally rich City of Melbourne, your host, the Rotary Club of Carlton, will bring a touch of Carlton’s colourful and café- inspired culture to the magnificent venue, The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. • With rousing entertainment, engaging speakers, inspiring stories of Rotary in action and innovations such as a Q&A session hosted by Tony Jones,  as well as the Rotary Social Responsibility Fair, expect the 2012 Conference to be as vibrant and diverse as Melbourne itself! • Plenary session themes will include “Leadership and the Ethical Challenge”, “Celebrating Our New Generations in The Family of Rotary”, “Health & Wellbeing: Where We Can Make a Difference” and “Building Communities”,  and we are assembling a list of speakers who will challenge your perceptions and shine a light on our community’s challenges. • Speakers, presenters and hosts confirmed to participate in the 2012 conference include ABC Lateline and Q&A Host, Tony Jones; and CEO of the Committee for Melbourne and Foundation Chair of the United Nations Global Compact Principles for Social Investment, Andrew MacLeod. • With the grand stage at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre befitting internationally renowned performers, the 2012 Conference will bring you an unsurpassed entertainment spectacular with some added surprises in store.  The Saturday night Gala Dinner will be an affair to remember, with sumptuous food and the very best in local wines coupled with a night of true celebration of  Rotary International’s great work. • This coming year will also include for the first time the Rotary Social Responsibility Fair, an exhibition open to corporates and the public that demonstrates  the work being done by Community Groups and Not-For-Profits.  These community groups alongside Rotary will have the opportunity to showcase their good works in communities at home and abroad whilst inviting the public and corporate sectors to engage with them. • The public will also be invited to join us in the innovative Q&A session with Tony Jones. This plenary session will provide the potential for a nationally televised audience while a panel of Australian leaders and experts discuss “Leadership and the Ethical Challenge”.  This will be a ‘must see’ session involving some of Australia’s biggest names in discussing some of the most ethically demanding issues facing our communities. • And if that’s not enough for you, on the Monday public holiday a late start will provide the perfect opportunity for a brunch for our Family of Rotary Day on Melbourne’s favourite old sailing ship, Polly Woodside. Bring the children, friends and family together to see Polly Woodside up close for Family of Rotary Day as we round out the Conference in a relaxing way on the banks of the Yarra. • If you want fun, world-class entertainment, inspiring speakers and the best weekend of the year...then you’ve got it! • The 80th Rotary District 9800 Annual Conference: Bringing Us Together for more than just a Conference!

  7. Ten Things to See and Do in Melbourne The key work to use when describing Melbourne is “variety”. There’s a plethora of things to see and do, with most centred within close proximity to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The sparkling lights of Parliament House set the mood at Siglo, a Euro-style venue in the roof of the Melbourne Supper Club. Explore Melbourne’s creative side with a walking tour. Walk to Art and Hidden Secrets Tours both have guided itineraries that explore street art and smaller artist-run gallery spaces. Discover the city’s waterfront: South Wharf is one of the newest dining precincts, just along from the Southbank Arts Precinct and the Crown Entertainment Complex. From Ned Kelly's armour to magician's materials, discover more than just books in the State Library's hallowed halls and exhibition spaces. Modern Asian food and cool cocktails are the focus at the funky eatery, Chin Chin on Flinders Lane. Take the 96 tram from the city to the beachside suburb of St Kilda. Stroll along the sand, visit the stores and cafés of Acland Street then have lunch at the legendary Stokehouse restaurant, overlooking the bay. From locally-designed originals to the best of international brands you'll be spoilt for choice in Melbourne's shopping precincts. Explore department stores and shopping centres and meander through the city's myriad arcades and laneways. Look up and admire the grand, elegant architecture of Melbourne's heritage buildings and their bold, striking contemporary neighbours, and visit design markets and studios to see why the city has become Australia's centre of contemporary design Take a guided walking tour of Federation Square to learn about the intriguing (and at times controversial) project development, the fascinating architecture, range of restaurants, bars, cafes and attractions within Federation Square. Opened in 1878, the Queen Victoria Market is more than just Melbourne's shopping mecca. This 19th century market is a historic landmark, tourist attraction and an institution for all Melburnians.
