Entry to the four ticketed events can be purchased separately or as a package. Members of Cider Australia receive a 25% discount on tickets – for information about membership visit our membership page.

Virtual attendance is available for the Conference Sessions on Thursday 4 May.


As there are limited accommodation options in and around Kalamunda, we will arrange coach transport to the conference on Thursday and for the Friday tour with pick up/drop off points on the Great Eastern Highway near Belmont and the Wattle Grove Motel.

The coach will stop near to several hotels, motels and apartments including:

  • Country Comfort Perth (Belmont)
  • Ingot Hotel Perth, Ascent Hotel Collection (Belmont)
  • Flag Motor Lodge (Rivervale)
  • Wattle Grove Motel (Wattle Grove)

We will contact AusCider ticket holders closer to the date to confirm coach reservations and pick up locations. 

Why not extend your stay and check out the Bickley Harvest Festival (6-7 May) or venture further afield. Tourism WA has some great resources to inspire you and assist planning here.

The Batlow CiderFest committee and the NSW Department of Primary Industries organised and convened the first seven conferences (2012-2018) in Batlow, NSW. In 2019, Cider Australia and the Batlow CiderFest agreed to transition management of the event to the peak industry body and AusCider 2019 was successfully held in Hobart, Tasmania. As part of the transition agreement, AusCider will continue to rotate annually between the key cider producing states of Australia.
