The Australian Discworld Convention
Welcome to the website of the Australian Discworld Conventions
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.
If you have been to previous conventions, then skip ahead to the latest news on what we have planned.
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 subscribe to our newsletter to be kept informed about all future announcements!
