The Australian Discworld Convention

Welcome to the website of the Australian Discworld Conventions

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.

Nullus Anxietas 9 - 2024

12-14 July, 2024 - Grand Chancellor Hotel, Adelaide

The Australian Discworld Convention is back! Join us for a fun weekend in deepest darkest Uberwald!

You can subscribe to our newsletter to be kept informed about all future announcements!

If you are interested in volunteering please fill in the volunteer form!

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 in the Newcomer's ABC, and answers to all those obscure questions (like what does "Nullus Anxietas" mean?) can be found in our FAQ.

If you want to keep in touch with other Australian Discworld fans, find your local fan club and get involved! If there isn't one in your area, why not start one?
