CCASA Information Day 2020

To be held on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 April 2020



Registrations are now open for our Information Day 2020. Please download a Program together with Registration Form and return to CCASA at by Monday 16 March 2020.

Our Program consists of:

Thursday 2 April: Tour of two local places of interest and a two hour evening networking function at the Ibis.

Members are invited to join us on our charter bus.  The Tour commences at 1:00pm precisely departing from the

Ibis Adelaide Hotel, 122 Grenfell Street Adelaide.

Secure car parking is available at the Rundle Place car park approximately 100 metres from the Ibis.  

1.  Royal Adelaide Hospital Mortuary 


The mortuary at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital has four state of the art

autopsy suites and increased body storage capacity. Staff will benefit from

new equipment which will reduce their manual handling tasks and there is

a dedicated viewing space for families of the deceased. 

2.  Walkerville Cemetery


The Wesleyan Cemetery in Walkerville is a historic site established in 1849.

The cemetery was closed to full burials in 1973 but continues to function as a

place for inurnment of ashes.  The site is owned by Town of Walkerville. 

Due to the proximity to the St Andrew’s School, and after a risk

assessment was carried out, a safety audit has been conducted with a number

of the at risk headstones now made safe.   This is an opportunity to learn about

the audit process, assessments on each headstone, costings and final outcome.

Following the Local Tour, members are warmly invited to attend the CCASA Sponsor and Member event at the Ibis Adelaide Hotel.  Drinks and nibbles will be provided.  To assist us with catering, we will require confirmation if you would like to attend this social function.  Please complete the Program and Registration Form.
