What is TuskCon?

Is a two day hacker camp with an emphasis on hands on learning and activities, not death by powerpoint. Now running for its second year, TuskCon will showcase the beautiful sunshine coast region, with activities utilizing the surrounding environment. We encourage participation from all, especially new and novel activities that wouldn't fit into a conventional con's agenda.

Overseeing the camp is well known infosec pinniped Lord Tuskington. The official con beer is Tusker, and anyone who'd like to assist with the logistics of somehow getting a pallette of the stuff shipped from Vanuatu and not seized by customs should get in touch.

Location & date

The con will be held at Cotton Tree Caravan Park, Maroochydore on the 11th and 12th of May 2019. The venue is a 1.5 hour drive from Brisbane, with public transport from both Brisbane and Sunshine Coast airports. It is also accessible by jet ski.


TuskCon is limited to 50 tickets, which are now available on eventbrite. Get in early to avoid missing out, it is highly likely the con will sell out quickly (the organizers sold out years ago).
