The Venue

  • Our new reunion venue is The Hotel Jen Brisbane, located at 159 Roma Street Brisbane City (across the road from last year's venue). Our function is being held in Parkland 1 and 2 (located on Level 5) which includes a wraparound balcony (smoking is permitted in a small area on the balcony). The venue has just been fully renovated, and they changed the name of the venue room after the renovation.

  • Hotel Jen is located next to the Roma Street Transit Centre. Those flying in can catch the sky train directly from the airport to the Roma St. Transit Centre.

  • A special accommodation deal has been booked in a block of rooms for us. Cost per room per night is $165 including full buffet breakfast for 1 person. Or $185 per room per night with full buffet breakfast for 2 people. If you don't wish to have breakfast included I have been told $20 per person can be deducted from that price.

  • You MUST use this code when booking "DJI260518" (which is short for Djinnang Assoc. 26 May 2018) and you MUST phone to book your room between 8.00am and 5pm Monday to Friday in order to get this deal. Phone number for the Hotel is 07-3238-2222 and ask for Reservations. If you call on a weekend you will not get through to the actual Hotel, and they will not know about the special deal we have.

  • We are being offered a discounted parking rate of $36 per day at the Hotel if you are staying there (subject to availability). Alternatively, if you only want to book parking for the duration of the reunion, going online at secureparking.com.au and booking ahead will only cost about $11 at the Roma Transit Centre secure parking carpark (151 Roma Street). The Hotel has its own Secure Parking carpark - but this is more expensive apparently.

  • There are no stairs at this venue and restrooms are located on the same level.

  • Patrons will be entitled to 1 free drink and platters of food will be served throughout the afternoon.
  • A coffee/tea station will be set up at no cost to patrons.
  • Dinner is available downstairs in their restaurant if required.
  • The cover charge unfortunately has again risen this year. $30 for non-perpetual members and $20 for perpetual members. This is necessary in order for us to attempt to cover our costs, unlike previous years.

  • Looking forward to seeing you all there on the night.
