40th CRANAplus Conference

Date & Time
10 - 12 October 2023

For our 40ᵗʰ anniversary year we had planned to return to where it all began for CRANAplus; Mparntwe/Alice Springs. Sadly, the current challenges facing the town and community of Mparntwe have prevented us from moving forward with the necessary planning for such a large-scale event. This includes securing appropriate and affordable accommodation options for delegates and engaging the necessary contracted service providers.

We wish to reassure our Members and Friends that this difficult decision was not taken lightly and involved deep consideration by the CRANAplus Executive Team and Board of Directors. We remain committed to bringing a major event to Mparntwe as soon as we are able to do so. In the meantime, CRANAplus continues to stand by the remote health community who call this special place home. Our Education and Mental Health and Wellbeing services remain available to you, as always.

We believe the new gathering place of Gimuy-walubarra and Yirrganydji Country, where the ocean waters meet the lush rainforest of Cairns, will be restorative and nurturing for all. We look forward to celebrating our 40ᵗʰ anniversary conference with you in this beautiful location.
