The Boomerang Hotel/Motel, 4 km north of the venue, is offering convention visitors special rates. Guests, who book through the Boomerang and state they are with the camera club, will receive a 10% discount on their rooms. Their rates do vary but if guests book early they are going to get a better rate.

We were advised by a local that this is a nice park and recommended. It is about 10 mins away from the Commercial club. You may find this better than ones closer in.

Kerrie, at the park, will give a 10% discount if you mention that you are attending the VAPS photography Convention.

    A Brief History:
    Camera clubs have existed in Melbourne since the 1890's and an umbrella organisation called the Victorian Photographic Affiliation was formed in 1908. This guided amateur photography in Victoria for forty years. The Victorian Association of Photographic Societies was formed on 27 September 1952 and comprised of 12 clubs. This has grown to more than 70 clubs in Jan 2016. VAPS is a non-profit association that is entirely self-funded. The Association is run by an elected Committee of Management which is responsible for the operations of the Association, and for ensuring the Association fulfils the objectives.
