The Australian Discworld Convention

The Australian Discworld Convention is a 3-day event fans of author Sir Terry Pratchett, famous for his humorous fantasy books - especially the Discworld series. The convention includes panels, special guests, workshops, creative events, costumes and a Gala Dinner, all focused on Terry Pratchett's works.

Our next convention is:

Nullus Anxietas 9 - 2024

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

Come ALIVE in Überwald!

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.

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 via the auction. Like Terry's books, the conventions are family friendly.
