Con 70 – A Retro Sci-Fi Adventure is an independently run, one-of-a-kind, non-profit science fiction convention that will be held on March 7-9, (Labour Day long weekend) 2015 in Melbourne, Australia. The aim of the convention is to provide an opportunity for fans to come together and relive the joys of 1970s science fiction movies and TV shows over a three day long weekend.

Our belief is that Con 70 is the first convention of its type in Australia (maybe even globally) so it will be a very special and unique event. We’ll also be keen to prove that the 1970s are still alive in the minds of many – especially when we quote the classic Con 70 motto “if it’s not retro, it’s no go.”
