SMASH! Sydney Manga and Anime Show (typically abbreviated to SMASH!) is an annual Japanese popular culture convention held in Sydney, Australia and organised by SMASH Inc, a non-profit volunteer-run association. The convention has been run annually since 2007.

SMASH! began as an art-focused event but has broadened its scope to include all areas of Japanese popular culture. It was the first Australian anime convention to host a Japanese voice actor, the first to host a Japanese anime director, the first to hold a maid cafe and the first to hold the national final for the Gunpla Builders World Cup.
