I've just received an update on the free SciFi convention being held soon in Sydney, and it's looking great. There's free be bag (for the first 100), panel groups, authors to meet, special presentations, a short story completion and lots more.
It's call Unicon Freecon, and will be on from 26-28 October at Building Six, University of
Technology, Rooms CB06.06.103 and CB06.06.123.
It's free, so I guess you can just show up. However, seats are limited, so you would be better to register in advance.

I'm going and I'm excited!
