Conference Venue

Monash University Caulfield Campus

The venue for the joint conference of the Applied Linguistics Association of Australia (ALAA) and Australian Linguistic Society (ALS) is the Caulfield campus of Monash University.

The conference is a short walk from Caulfield Railway Station and is easy to reach from the central business district (Melbourne city central) using public transport.

Getting There

Public Transport

Caulfield Railway Station is adjacent to the campus, and four lines stop at the station: Cranbourne, Dandenong, Frankston, and Pakenham. Caulfield is a major station, so all trains stop there.

Caulfield is also easy to reach by tram. From Swanston Street in the city, the number 3 tram (heading towards East Malvern) travels directly to Monash’s Caulfield campus. Stops 57, 58, and 59 are the closest.

See the Public Transport Victoria website for maps, timetables, and their Journey Planner.


Melbourne’s public transport network uses a prepaid card system called Myki (pronounced “my key”). Tickets are not sold on board trams, trains or buses. Myki cards can be purchased from train stations, and some retail outlets such as newsagents and convenience stores. More information is available on the Public Transport Victoria website here:

Parking at Caulfield Campus

A user pay, multi-level car park is available on campus for staff, students, visitors and the general public. Entry to the car park is from Princes Avenue. Ticket machine parking ranging from one to five hours is also available in surrounding streets.
