About the Symposium

Animal Health Australia, the Invasive Species Council, the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions and Plant Health Australia are excited to host the 2021 Australian Biosecurity Symposium to be held 26-28 October on the Gold Coast, QLD.

The Symposium will once again focus on research and innovation, outside-of-the-box thinking and the exchange of knowledge and ideas across the biosecurity collective – agriculture (animals and plants), pest animals, weeds, wildlife, aquatics, humans and the environment.

Australia’s biosecurity system faces unprecedented pressure. To address this pressure, strong leadership and innovation is essential. Our Symposium provides the ideal platform to explore how to transform Australia’s biosecurity systems to better protect our economy, environment and way of life.

The Symposium will bring an unprecedented opportunity to influence the direction of Australia’s future biosecurity system, network, develop new concepts, share and test ideas, build new partnerships and engage in challenging discussions that stimulate debate and energy – we hope you will be a part of it!

Further information about the event, including the theme for 2021, will be available soon. Please express your interest below if you would like to be kept informed of event updates.
