Booking Questions

What is the cost?

Attend the live stream - Megabundle (all 4 tracks) - AU$395 - Single track - AU$135

Purchase the recordings - Megabundle (all 4 tracks) - AU$295 - Single track - AU$99

Can I add one or more tracks to my booking?

If you have booked a single track and want to add one more, just do a new/additional booking. If you want to upgrade to the Megabundle (all 4 tracks), email us at We will give you a promo code to discount the bundle by the amount you have already paid.

Single day/track bookings are not available for the in-person event at this stage. Should COVID-19 restrictions be lifted to allow higher capacity at the venue we may allow single day/track bookings. We are unlikely to know that until well into 2022.

What if I have to cancel a booking?

You may cancel with full refund up to 8 October 2022 - one month before the start of the event.

Cancellations from 9 October to 1 November - fee paid less AU$100

An alternative to cancellation - convert the in-person event to live stream - up to 1 November 2022 - with a refund of the cost difference.


Recording Questions

What presentations will be recorded?

All presentations given at the event as well as other sponsored and other presentations supplied as recordings only. All sponsored recordings will be included in every track package. Workshops will not be recorded.

When will the recordings be available to book for and how long will they be available to view?

Recordings may be pre-booked. They will remain open to book (purchase access to) after the event until 31 January 2023. Bonus recordings will be available as released progressively in the lead up to the conference. All recordings will continue to be available to view online until 28 February 2023.

What will the recordings cost?

Access to recordings is included at no extra cost for those attending in person or by live stream.

Recordings are also available as no-frill packages as individual tracks, or a complete set, as follows:

  • DNA: Genetic research - $99
  • Researching abroad - $99
  • Australia & New Zealand - $99
  • Methodology & General - $99
  • Mega-bundle - $295 (all of the above for less than the price of 3 tracks)

The cost is the same whether pre-booked or booked later - up to 31 January 2023

Can I share the recordings with others?

Unfortunately, we have to say no. Recordings are licensed for personal use only - to you and your immediate family. They are available for online viewing only. They must not be viewed in a public or group environment. A unique access code is given to every person. Copyright ownership remains with the presenter.

General Questions

Will COVID-19 rules impact FHDU 2022?

When Australia reaches full vaccination (for those who want it) near the end of 2022 it is expected that most travel restrictions within Australia will be lifted. International borders should also begin to open up at the same time or soon after.

However, some restrictions and precautions may still apply well into 2022 - e.g. maximum venue numbers, signing in, etc.

For those still hesitant to travel, the planned live stream option is an excellent way to experience most what FHDU 2022 will offer - with the significant bonus of savings on travel, accommodation and catering costs.
