10 Years Ago Today...

On February 9th, 2007, around 200 people gathered at the Carlton Crest Hotel in Melbourne for the very first Australian Discworld Convention - simply named "Nullus Anxietas". Sir Terry Pratchett was there, and we all had a lot of fun!

See photos from all our previous conventions here.

Celebrate this milestone with our commemorative t-shirt!

The "Ten Years of Australian Discworld Conventions" t-shirt shows the logos, names, years and locations of all of the previous Australian Discworld Conventions and is available in Men's and Ladies' styles and a range of colours - as long as those colours are black. Click here ...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year of the Backwards Facing Artichoke, but perhaps more importantly, it's now the year of the Discworld Grand Tour!

Embarkation begins on 4th August 2017 at the Lakes Resort Hotel, West Lakes, South Australia, but there's so much to get organised before then.

We will have a lot more information for you over the coming months, but for now, a friendly reminder about what you can learn already!

Don't be a Late Bird!

Our early-bird ticket sales have been going on for more than a year now, but there's now only ONE MONTH left ...

Hogswatch is Coming!

Hogswatch is coming - so you'd better watch out!

Watch out for the looming end of early-bird ticket sales, that is!

On February 4th, 2017 - that's six months out from the convention - the price of tickets to the Discworld Grand Tour will go up! An adult attending ticket, currently on sale at $140 will go back to the regular price of $180. So if you want to save that extra money, think about buying your ticket very soon!

However - don't despair! If you're a bit short of cash, or you're not sure about the convention yet ...
