Naamaroo Conference Centre, Lady Game Drive, Chatswood West. The entrance is near the entry to the Lane Cove National Park,

Other details:

We will send a detailed email with information about what to bring, the schedule, arrival and check-in, concert program, and so on. The final details will be sent out in the second week of December.

Arrival & start time on day 1:

Check-in will be from 8:00am – 9:30 on the first morning, Monday January 6. If you are flying, training, or driving to Sydney from interstate try to arrive during this time. If you can’t, that’s ok but you should let us know when to expect you. There will be an orientation meeting at 9:30am and the first rehearsals will begin at 10:00.

End of workshop concert & finish time

The workshop culminates at 2:00 pm on the last day, Friday January 10 in an informal festival-style concert performance by the students at the camp venue Family and friends are welcome to come and watch the students show some of what they have learnt. There will be 3-4 stages set up in venues around the conference centre with bands playing simultaneously. Everything will culminate in the main hall with some presentations and farewells by 3:45pm.

Accommodation before and after the camp

If you need accommodation before or after the camp (because of flight times, for instance) we can help you find a billet with one of the local jazz camp families. You’ll need to tell us if you need this and then we’ll try to put you in touch with a local family. You can also contact Naamaroo Conference Centre directly to ask about staying there, but they won’t have unaccompanied under-18s. For hotel accommodation for families visiting Sydney while their loved one is at camp, there are plenty of hotels in Sydney ranging from brilliant to dreadful! The closest hotel areas to the venue are Chatswood and North Ryde. Chatswood is a bit better for public transport and easy access to the city. But Naamaroo is close to the city, so any hotel in the city or on the north shore would be fine. There is also a caravan park with cabins, van site, and tent sites in the adjacent Lane Cove National Park, walking distance to Naamaroo. It is reasonably cheap and has access to trains and buses, but is very popular during school holidays. The Quest North Ryde serviced apartments are also within walking distance of both Naamaroo and North Ryde station. There is nothing else in North Ryde, though, besides offices and a cemetery. Unless you have a car, you’ll have a better time somewhere else. There are also some serviced apartments in Chatswood (Mantra, Sebel, Quest, Meriton). These are all very nice and can often be reasonably-priced. Search online for these. There will not be any extra rooms available at Naamaroo during the camp.
