AI-Con, Hobart (February/March)
Supanova, Brisbane (April/May)
Animania, Brisbane (May)
AVCon, Adelaide (July)
SMASH!, Sydney (August)
Manifest, Melbourne (September)
Animania, Sydney (September)
Supanova, Sydney (October)
Armageddon, Melbourne (October)
WAI-Con, Perth (December)

I think there's an Animania in Melbourne as well, but I'm not sure when it's on. And Gen Con is making an appearance in Brisbane next year in July... but I'm not sure if it's a repeating thing.

So many cons... (looks at bank account and cries) if I can go to half of them, it will be a miracle.

Look at those dates!
Brisbane Supanova and Melbourne is so close to each other!
If I want to go to one Brisbane con next year and Animania Sydney, I better worked hard at my low-paying jobs! XD
*calculating all the costs for the con next year*
I NEED MONEY!!! LOL XD

Anything that is questionable usually has a warning on the door, like the 18+ yaoi panel at Manifest. Most cons try really hard to be family-friendly... there is the occasional attendee who will say or do something inappropriate, but that happens in everyday society as well, so yeah, you don't have to be concerned you're going to see anything you shouldn't! XD
