nicci-sidesWelcome to the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Fertility Society of Australia (FSA 2015) – Canberra.

Canberra. Australia’s Capital. What better place to discuss the challenging and often conflicting interests of science and evidence based medicine with the politics and rules of funding and regulation of Fertility Services and the myriad of opinions from consumer, special interest and paramedical groups?

Canberra is the national capital of Australia, a planned city full of surprises and ranked as the OECD’s “Top city to live in the world for 2014”.

Wide open spaces, and beautiful vistas around the central Lake Burley Griffin invite you to a morning walk or bike ride. Drop into cultural icons; the National Museum of Australia, the National Gallery of Australia and Questacon or the new National Arboretum with spectacular views to the Snowy Mountains

Fine restaurants and casual outdoor eating are a part of our relaxed culture Try our cool climate wines, and cellar door tours will introduce you to the joys of new Reisling and Tempranillo, the red wine’s answer to Sauvignon Blanc.

Canberra is a centre of politics and bureaucracy, of education and research, of defence and diplomacy, of culture and fine art, of elite sport and tech industry.
