Nullus Anxietas 7a - The Australian Discworld Convention

Sadly the convention has been cancelled!

Keith the Hippo is sad

Sadly the committee have taken the decision to cancel the planned Australian Discworld Convention in April 2022 - read more information here.

When there is not a pandemic on, 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. The conventions usually run for 3 days from Friday to Sunday, and include panels, special guests, workshops, creative events, costumes and a Gala Dinner, all focused on Terry Pratchett's works.

Virtual Hogswatch

On a positive note, we held a very fun Virtual Hogswatch event on Saturday 11th December, 2021.

Please see this page for all the details.

Videos of the various events are progressively going up on our Youtube channel so please check them out there (or look at the playlists below for videos from both The Lost Con and Virtual Hogswatch)

Never been to a Discworld Convention 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.

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.
