The Australian Institute of Family Studies is the Australian Government’s key research body in the area of family wellbeing.

Every two years, our conference offers unrivalled opportunities to mix with leading thinkers, decision-makers and researchers across a range of sectors and disciplines who are dedicated to improving the lives of families.

A highlight of the family policy and practice calendar, the conference attracts over 500 delegates from across Australia, and internationally, and is held in Melbourne, the world’s most liveable city.

Join us for three days to boldly explore the challenges, promising ideas, and exposure to what works for families (and what doesn’t!)
