Occupational Therapy Australia Otaus2023 Banner

Occupational Therapy Australia’s 30th National Conference and Exhibition (OTAUS2023) will be held from 21 – 23 June 2023 at the Cairns Convention Centre in Queensland.

OTA’s National Conference is the most significant professional gathering of occupational therapists in Australia, bringing together like-minded professionals from around the country and overseas. It provides fantastic opportunities for networking and professional development, with access to the latest in healthcare products and technology at our trade exhibition.

OTA is thrilled to announce that Turia Pitt will join the conference as keynote speaker. Turia Pitt is living proof that, with the right mindset, anything is possible. Caught in a grassfire while competing in a 100km ultramarathon in 2011, Turia suffered full-thickness burns to 65% of her body. But surviving is the least of her achievements.

One of Australia’s most admired and widely recognised people, Turia has gone on to become a bestselling author, two-time Ironman and humanitarian – raising well over a million dollars for not-for-profit Interplast. Through her online presence, books and online programs, Turia has inspired millions to live with more confidence, drop their fears and smash epic goals.

The conference’s exciting and robust program launches in mid-December. Registration opens in early 2023 – visit the website to complete an expression of interest to be one of the first to view the program and take advantage of early bird pricing.

Accommodation and tour bookings are open now. Special rates have been negotiated for conference delegates at a variety of Cairns hotels and apartments – click here for more information.
