Staying in Sydney

Securing your accommodation - Sydney is beautiful but busy and in March, hotel rooms can be a bit thin on the ground ... we have two hotels we regularly use and which offer special rates for OZTek but there are also many other options.

We also recommend looking at online systems if needed.

History in the Making

In October 2018, an expedition to commemorate and document the 100th anniversary of the Scapa Flow wrecks is being undertaken by MV Halton and MV Huskyan, skippered by Emily Turton.

Emily will be at OZTek to show us the results, along with Professors Chris Rowland and Kari Hyttinen, two extraordinary divers/scientists at the absolute cutting edge of 3D photogrammetry.
