The NACAA convention has been held across Australia since 1967, and has become a significant national forum at which amateur astronomers can exchange experiences, stay abreast of the latest trends, foster co-operative activities between individuals, societies and the professional sphere, and network amongst their peers throughout Australia and beyond.
The Programme Committee is pleased to announce that the programme for NACAA XXVI is now ready!!! We have had a huge response from speakers around the country and internationally. We look forward to an exciting and vibrant event, and wish to thank all those who submitted papers and posters.

The 8th TTSO will be held in conjunction with NACAA XXVI.
