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, mysteriously processed meat) and sweets (chocolate, snakes etc).

The canteen will also have a steaming urn of hot water for your hot beverage needs, and probably teabags, coffee and maybe hot chocolate sachets, suger packets, milk portions and so on. But feel free to bring your own!


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

There will be no banquet this year.

Post con drinkies

Post-con drinkies is a Pheno tradition, a relaxing time to gather and trade tall tales and contact details with mysterious new friends – and to be inspired for next year! It happens at nearby pub.

2023 Post-con drinkies will be held at the Dickson Taphouse* pub .

They have gluten free and vego options on their menu and lots of the lovely liquid stuff.
