Come to a bar night or a lunch!
If you want to meet
some Aussies and Kiwis over a beer and a light dinner come to one of our bar
nights. They are held each month, usually on a Friday. The venues change
month to month and sometimes we seek out a nice restaurant for a good meal.
Or come to our monthly lunch, also at different venues. Dates and venues of
bar nights, lunches and other events are listed in our monthly newsletter
and on this site.
||OzCon - Wien
OZCON is an informal group of people who
have some connection or interest in
Australia and like to have some fun.
We live and work in Austria and like to
keep in touch through gatherings, functions
and our monthly online newsletter.
We meet at least once a month at various
venues for a chat, lunch or a 'bar night.'
We try and keep the venues central and
always advertise where and when in the
We also organise occasional events which
can range from a visit to the opera to a BBQ
in a park, a night at a Ball, a wine tasting
in the Wachau Valley or a visit to an
interesting location in Vienna.
Our annual subscription of €20 for individuals, €10 for Students and €30 for families goes towards subsidising some of our functions -
and you don't have to be Australian to be a member.
Every time there is an event or function or
just a party you can be sure someone will have
a digital camera and collecting many photos of
