Come to Canberra to celebrate our brilliant talent at the Aussie spec fic night of nights, the Aurealis Awards, Australia’s premier speculative fiction awards!


The event – delivered by the current Aurealis Awards overseers, the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild (CSFG) – will take place in the Macarthur Room at the Ainslie Football and Social Club (52 Wakefield Ave, Ainslie ACT) on Saturday 3 June, 2023, starting from 6:00PM with canapes – ceremony kicks off at 7:00PM.

Tickets are $25.00 each, with discount options available to 2022 Judges and Finalists (please check your email for more information!).

Here are some crucial bits of information for you!


We love to see people frock up for the Awards, but we also love people to feel comfortable in their clothes – wear what makes you feel good! (Please note the dress code for the venue, which interestingly includes no hats…)


Tickets include service of a wonderful range of delicious canapes prior to the ceremony (please let us know any dietary requirements when you book your ticket).

If you would like a full meal, the Limestone Kitchen at the Club opens at 5:00PM, giving you an hour prior to our event kicking off at 6:00PM – you can see the menu and book a table here. The kitchen closes at 8:30PM, well before the Awards ceremony is expected to end, but you can also bring food into the Macarthur Room at the start of the event.


Drinks will be available to purchase from a bar in the Macarthur Room throughout our event. The Club also has an excellent selection of craft beers, wines and spirits at the main bar, which is open until 2:00AM.


There is lots of great accommodation within easy walking distance or a short taxi/uber trip. Prices vary, but there are options – book early to get the best price.


Free onsite parking is available.

See you there!
