Advanced group bookings are essential and we ask that you book as far in advance as possible. Users external to the University of Queensland may book up to 12 months in advance. It is recommended that you book for the following year prior to your departure. Providing alternative dates will improve your chances of success. Please notify us immediately if there are any changes to your booking.
