For over 50 years the Australian National SF Convention has been the most important event on the Australian SF & F calendar. It usually attracts hundreds of people: fans, writers, booksellers, publishers, movie-makers and other enthusiasts from around the country and even overseas.

While ostensibly a general science fiction convention, fans of all genres of SF&F are sure to be able to explore their particular SF interests, while at the same time have a great deal of fun and perhaps discover some other aspect of science fiction, fantasy or horror to pique their interest. The program will also feature some real science topics and an ANZAC Day Dawn Service.

Canberra is convenient to both Melbourne and Sydney and boasts a busy airport and a wide range of bus connections. The convention site, the Rydges Lakeside, situated in downtown Canberra City, is convenient to restaurants, entertainment venues, tourist attractions, other hotels, and the central retail district. What more could you ask: a real coming together!

End of page one, page 2 is just blurb about the guests.

About australian sf-history

ASFDAP was set up in 2011 after the rediscovery by the wider SF community of an impressive hoard of Australian SF community related ephemera, fanzines and other materials in the Murdoch University basement.
