About The Convention

This year, Australian Skeptics celebrate our 34th consecutive annual convention, the world’s longest running skeptical event.

Skepticon 2018 returns to The Concourse Chatswood, a great venue in Sydney’s northern suburbs that is regularly used for concerts, theatre, comedy, and conventions. Close to transport and accommodation, Chatswood also has huge number and variety of food outlets.

Our lineup of speakers covers medicine, space, education, belief systems, linguistics, and classic skeptical topics, not to mention some of the best local and international podcasters and science communicators.

It truly is a festival exploring science, reason, and critical thinking.
