I'd be interested in maybe attending, I do love a good opportunity for drinks and looking at lit up buildings.

Please note me as gold. It's quite early to confirm, but Sydney looks like a good choice and it's easy to get to from Europe

Anyway I have reserved May 24-May27 in the Holiday Inn Old Sydney (subject to change)

List me as Platinum One / Copper ish status.

Echoing kpc's comment, please do book hotels early as Sydney can be expensive / sold out during Vivid, particularly on a Saturday night.

Platinum for me and Mrs QF WP please.

Both Hilton brand hotels aren't available.

Booked Holiday Inn Potts Point for 2 nights, $144 + $216 = $360.

With my first OzFest I stayed at the 4 Points as an SPG Gold - received an accessible room on the ground floor.

I have booked the Same Building- under drastically different circumstances.

This sad information was first in this thread on 24 June. Posts here and posts in the In Memoriam: FlyerTalk Members Who Have Departed thread have been moved to the dedicated thread.
Dedicated thread ---> RIP Pooch

She attended 6 Oz Fests from Oz Fest 5 (2005) in Hobart to Oz Fest 10 in Perth (2013). She will be missed. A glass will be raised in her memory at Oz Fest 16.

She joins others who have attended Oz Fest and who are now not with us.

While i'm not for certain (trying to get more new countries in 2019). I'm 2/3 booked. Inbound flight in Cathay. I'm still working on the return but I was slacking and the space i was looking at disappeared. I took advantage of the 100% bonus on IHG points and grabbed a few nights at Holiday Inn Darling Harbour. Shockingly it was the cheapest hotel at 35K points but most expensive going $600 a night.
