ANSTO tour

When: Wednesday 3 November. The tour bus will leave the conference hotel after lunch and return at around 6 pm. ANSTO is about 50 minutes drive from the conference venue. The visit will take about 2 hours.

What: ANSTO is home to Australia's research reactor known as OPAL. We offer a visit to see OPAL's neutron scattering facilities operated by the Bragg Institute at ANSTO which leads Australia in the use of neutron scattering techniques. For more information about ANSTO and the Bragg Institute please go to web-pages of ANSTO and the Bragg Institute.

Important note: As ANSTO is a highly secure Commonwealth Protected site there are special security requirements for visitors:

  • Prior to the visit you will be asked to provide your contact and photo identification details (eg passport number or Australian drivers licence number).
  • You will need to bring your photo identification with you when you come on the tour.
  • Visitors are not permitted to take any unauthorised photographic devices, including mobile phones with cameras or other recording equipment, weapons, firearms, explosives, alcohol, animals or containers with volatile liquids on site.
  • Bags may not be taken on site.
  • Prams or strollers may not be taken on site.
  • Fully enclosed shoes must be worn.
  • Lockers are available at the Visitor Centre for handbags and other valuables (please avoid bringing valuables if possible).

If you are interested in joining this tour please email Cherylie Thorn by Friday 1 October 2010.
