Food, Glorious Food

The King's Pantry

For when a event means that you can't just quickly go outside, Pheno runs a canteen that stocks cold drinks (water, sports drinks, coke, soft drinks, energy drinks) sealed snacks (chips, nuts, knuckle sandwiches) and sweets (chocolate, snakes etc) as well as an assortment of hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate)—ask about our discount for anecdotes!


If epic munchiness ensues, Dickson shops are only 10 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive (plus finding a park for your ride) 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.

King Morph's Banquet

Whether you want delicious food, camaraderie, carousing, or just not to have to leave the site between sessions, then join us to uphold the Phenomenon motto: Canberra's Friendliest Roleplaying Convention.

Taking place during the Sunday Night break and going on until people are sated, the Phenomenon Feast Hall will continue the reinstigated tradition of the most banquety banquet™.

With the change of convention date our usual caterers are unavailable, so this year we are trying something new! (With any luck it will also be warm enough to each out in the courtyard! shock-horror

This year, Capital Roast will be providing a cornucopia of delights for the royal tastebuds:
Mains: Succulent Leg Pork, Grain fed Yearling Beef, Free-Range Chicken, Vegetable Lasagne
You want Sauces? We have: Mint sauce, Hot Gravy, Seeded Mustard, Apple sauce, Chutney
Sides : Hot Roast Potatoes, Peas and Beans, Tossed Green Salad, Mixed Lentil and Vegetables
Desserts : Classic Chocolate Mud Cake (Gluten Free), Apple Crumble, Pear and Cinnamon Cake, Fresh cream, Tea and Coffee

Price - $33 : Let us know in your entry that you want to attend, (there will be a tick-box for that), and pay at the con.

Post con drinkies: or King Morph commands that there be more feasting and merriment

Post-con drinkies will be held at a new venue in Dickson, built upon the ashes of the old venue (so finding it should be easy for us old-timers).

Ducks Nuts has gluten free options on their menu and lots of the lovely liquid stuff.

Other Ammenities

Parenting room

Pheno will offer 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 for those in distress, please ask an org.

No there isn't a signal

We are sorry to disappoint but Pheno does not provide WiFi. As a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers in our spare time we simply can't afford to.
