If you’re heading to Sydney later this year or considering a trip to NSW and pondering dates, then make sure you consider the 26-27 September. On this weekend, the famous Sydney Comic-Con will be taking place at the Exhibition Center.
Bringing you within eye level of the biggest names in comics, sci-fi, TV, movies, digital technology and all things truly creative, Comic-Con 2015 will not disappoint! It’s not only a destination for pop culture fans in Australia but with so many exhibitors, events and celebrity appearances, you’ll be out of your animated mind to miss this.
Take into account that the event will be touring the country this year so for all budding fans, if you want to max out on the fun before Sydney, Comic-Con will be in Brisbane on the 19–20 September.
There are nine publishing guests at the event from Paul Mason (The Soldier Legacy) to Jason Palmer (Firefly) and Kylie Chan (Dark Heavens). More guests are scheduled so keep checking the website. Just in case you need an additional adrenaline rush, last year’s line-up included Orlando Bloom, Chris Wahl and William Shatner.
For all families planning their trip to Sydney, Comic-Con is the epitome of fun for kids in the Family Activity Room. There are programming classes for the little ones including workshops, arts, crafts and interactive, so you can chill out and enjoy the event while your little monsters knock themselves out with creativity.
The coolest part about Comic-Con is the price as you’ll not be breaking the bank during the weekend. Online advanced tickets are only $30 (AUD) each day or buy a weekend ticket at $50. If your rugrats are in tow, you receive one free kid’s ticket (aged 4-12) with every adult purchase. Additional children’s tickets are $15 each day or $25 for the weekend.
During the weekend, create your own magical experience, buy some capes and fly (not literally) over the Famous Harbour by ferry to a Sydney boutique hotel. Within a few minutes, you’ll be at Cremorne Point Manor, overlooking the stunning city skyline. If you’re lucky, you may see the Bat-signal. Hey, you never know when the force may be with you!
