Does anyone know about any Cons in Australia this year? I am going on an abroad trip to Australia, and since I cant make it to Anizona (Arizona's Con) I want to go to on in Australia.

It may not be quite as accurate outside of North America, but Anime Cons seems to be the best source for info:

From my experience of SF and RPG cons, the main difference is that they are smaller - the big name US cons (US Worldcons, Gencon) have can have tens of thousands of attendees; a Worldcon outside the US might have 3-5 thousand, and an RPG con might be 2-3 hundred.

There's "WAI-Con" over here in Perth, Which has only been running for a couple of years or so?

I've never been myself (Actually I've only just heard of it? :oops: ), But It's held during the 15th-16th December this year, At Perth Convention Centre

i've been to each of the wai-cons since 2004. I'm skipping this year, since i didn't particularly enjoy 2005 and 2006.

Hey fellow Australians

I havent been as active as much as of late. a couple of months, but I do sometime check up upon the boards.

But the anime cons in Australia are forever expanding and growing however it would seem the growth is limited to the east coast.

People still live in Australia? [/sarcasm]

-On EMF, as a thread becomes longer, the likelihood that fem-Kaworu will be mentioned increases exponentially.
-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity

Nope, No people down here, Just us Red back spiders on the toilet seat. :D


On second thought, I might actually look at going to the West Australian convention, Just to see what it's like for myself? .
