The Australian Discworld Convention

Welcome To Ankh-Morpork

Welcome to the website of the Australian Discworld Conventions


Nullus Anxietas 7a - The Australian Discworld Convention - will be held in Sydney on 8th to 10th April 2022

The Australian Discworld conventions are run every 2 years for fans of author Sir Terry Pratchett, famous for his humorous fantasy books - especially the Discworld series. Nullus Anxietas 7a will be the eighth major Australian Discworld Convention!

The conventions run for 3 days from Friday to Sunday, and include panels, special guests, workshops, creative events, costumes and a Gala Dinner, all focussed on Terry Pratchett's works.

Old friends

If you have been to previous conventions, then skip ahead to the latest news on what we have planned.

Never been before?

The convention is a chance to meet other fans of Sir Terry Pratchett, have fun and share the humour of the books. Maybe dress up as a favourite character - many attendees do, but it is not compulsory. (Warning - do not come as a mime. If you have read the books, you will know why!)

We aim to pack a lot of fun into 3 days, running multiple events simultaneously and finishing late in the evening on Friday and Saturday. Everything is included in the 3 day ticket price except the Gala Dinner.

The conventions are run by fans, are not-for-profit but do raise money for charity. Like Terry's books, the conventions are family friendly.

You can find more details on the Newbies' pages here.
And answers to all those obscure questions (like what does "Nullus Anxietas" mean?) can be found in our FAQ.

Mission Statement

A burning fuse

Since we all got together for the Lost Con (and was it really only a few weeks ago?) so much has changed so rapidly. It seems that half of Australia (and now all of New South Wales, Victoria and ACT) is in lockdown. Right now, our mission is to spread some good Terry Pratchett humour to all his fans out there. If you are feeling down or lonely, remember …

Also, thanks to all our guests who helped make it a great …
