SwanCon is Australia's longest-running science fiction convention, and is thought to be the longest running convention of this type in the southern hemisphere. It has been held annually in Perth, Western Australia since its inception in 1976, and has grown from a small gathering of like-minded friends into multi-fandom event that attracts upwards of 250 people. It is traditionally held in the first half of the year, typically for five days over the Easter long weekend.
