8-10 JUNE 2023 | QT Gold Coast


The Family Law Practitioners Association of Queensland (FLPA) is pleased to host its flagship event, the FLPA Retreat, between Thursday 8 and Saturday 10 June 2023.


In the offering is ten (10) hours’ worth of content, developed by family law practitioners for family law practitioners - technical and practical sessions, and thought-provoking plenary sessions, with something for everyone, from sole practitioners/barristers and micro firms to those practising in large teams. Saturday’s content will also incorporate a new, third, concurrent stream tailored to early career practitioners.


This year we take the Retreat to a new venue, QT on the Gold Coast to offer a fresher feel, and open up the capacity for greater numbers, following feedback from previous conferences. We have also brought the conference back to its original mid-year timeslot so as to avoid the end of year work rush and any need for delegates to source accommodation during peak summer season.  Whether flying solo for the weekend, or travelling with family, there is plenty to do at the venue and within the surrounds of Surfers Paradise. In-house delights including impressive breakfasts at Bazaar, a fine dining Japanese restaurant Yamagen (offering sushi making classes and whisky tastings), spaQ (think massages, facials or roasting yourself in a steam room) and of course easy access to the Esplanade and walks along Main Beach.


Friday night’s social function marks the half-way point of the Retreat over drinks with friends, and the welcome and closing networking drinks are a great opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues and to meet other professionals. 


Be sure to treat yourself, and book the 2023 FLPA Retreat in your calendar.
