Location and map
Phenomenon 2003 will happen at Daramalan College,
Cowper Street Dickson, ACT.
Important note: due to renovations, the entrance to the Daramalan
car park is currently on Morphett Street rather than Cowper Street.
There is still lots of parking, however.
How to get there
Head north up Northbourne Avenue from Civic. Turn right at Morphett
Street. Daramalan's parking entrance is off Morphett Street.
Northbourne Avenue and Antill Street is the first big intersection
after the Barton Highway. If you're coming from Sydney you're already
on Northbourne and you'll pass the Barton highway on your right.
If you're coming from Melbourne, the Barton Highway ends at Northbourne
Avenue. Don't try to keep going straight on. Turn right onto Northbourne.
From Northbourne, turn left at Morphett Street and look for the
car park entrance on your left.
Food, Glorious Food
Pheno will run an instant coffee and tea service, but not a canteen.
The reason for this is that Daramalan is within short staggering
distance (less than 5 minutes) of Dickson shops, including a Woolies,
Maccas, KFC, Ali Baba's, Cragel's Bagels, several takeaways, and
more Chinese and SE Asian restaurants than you can shake a stick
at (my arm got tired after five). Dickson shops also includes autotellers,
a chemist, news agent, service stations, and a musical instrument
The banquet this year will be held at Zeffirelli’s,
on Woolley St, Dickson. This is a short stagger from the con site.
For the banquet, they are offering a wide range of pizzas (they’re
famous for them, and gosh are they good), and pasta. They also have
a bar and a wide selection of wines. Pizza, pasta and garlic bread
are included in your banquet price. Drinks are not (sorry!).
Post-con drinkies will be held at O’Neill’s
Irish Pub, which is across the road from Zeffirelli’s. They
have Guinness (and other drinks for you philistines who don’t
partake of the creamy black goodness). You can get snacks from $5
and dinner from $10 — they have a variety of yummy stuff on
their menu and their kitchen will be open until 9pm.
