The 15th Australian Narrow Gauge Convention activities will be hosted across the Easter long weekend of 2023 (Friday - Sunday, April 7th-9th, 2023). Attendees will be able to check in at the convention venue from 6 pm on Friday evening, with layouts and trade stands available to visit. Friday evening is a good opportunity to submit contest entries and to catch up with familiar faces of the narrow gauge community. Saturday will provide a full day of clinic presentations, the opportunity to view all the layouts and trade stands, view the contest models and photographs for voting and discuss all things narrow gauge with fellow attendees. On Saturday evening we will also be hosting the convention awards presentation and dinner at the nearby Mulgrave Country Club (optional extra for attendees and partners). Sunday will offer another full day of clinic presentation and view the winning contest entries, with the convention concluding at approximately 5 pm.
