Food & services


Food, Glorious Food!


Pheno runs a canteen on-site that stocks cold drinks (water, sports drinks, soft drinks, energy drinks) sealed snacks (chips, nuts, parrot sandwiches) and sweets (chocolate, snakes etc) as well as an assortment of hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate)—ask about our discount for sea shanties!


If epic munchiness ensues, Dickson shops are only 10 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive (plus finding a park for your galleon) from Pheno. Dickson shops include a Woolies, Maccas, KFC, Ali Baba's, several takeaways, a couple of cafes (with internet access) and more Chinese and Asian restaurants than you can shake a stick at (my arm got tired after five). Dickson shops also includes autotellers, a chemist, a news agent, and service stations.

The Banquet

In normal years Pheno runs a banquet on Sunday night. Unfortunately, 2021 is not a normal year, so you will have to make your own dinner arrangements for Sunday night.

Post-Con Drinkies

In normal years Pheno arranges with a nearby pub for hungry, angst-worn players and GMs to relax and trade tall tales of their exploits. Unfortunately again, 2021 is not a normal year.

Other Amenities

The Front Desk

Pheno organisers (the folks with stylish red sashes) run a central admin/help desk in the main general space at all times during the Con. If you need to update your registration details, pay for added games, need to know where a room (or GM) is, or what the weight of a brontosaurus is, the Front Desk is the place to start.

First Aid

Pheno's First Aid station is at the Front Desk.

Parenting Room

Pheno offers a space for you to care for your children, with change table etc. This will not be staffed — you will need to supervise your own children here.

Quiet Space

Quiet spaces are available if you need some time out: please ask an organiser.

But sorry, no wifi...

Sadly, Pheno does not provide WiFi. As a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers in our spare time we just can't afford to.
