Is there Aussie conventions ?

Hi all,
I see that all over the world there are Star Wars conventions. I assume there are some here in Australia but I have never heard of them. We have trade fairs or swap meets, but they are quite small but you can still get a bargain. I am interested in what happens at these conventions and if anyone knows if there will be one in Aust. sometime soon if at all.

There is various Sci Fi Conventions here in Australia, you just have to be lucky living close to them. There was a SW con in Brisbane a while back but i never got to it. From memory it was a three day con and Jeremy Bulloch and Kenny Baker was there.

There was the Supernova con in Sydney (just gone in May) and Brisbane (Sept 18-19) . Awesome convention in Brissy last year, David Prowse and Peter Mayhew was there. try Supernova's website for details. I'll keep a look out for more for you and post it here, seeing we are getting more Aussies here......
