Conventions & Get-Together’s

What is a Convention?

Australasian conventions are typically held every two years and are organised on a rotational basis by one of the Cactus and Succulent Societies in Australia or by one of the branches of the New Zealand Society.

Cacticon 2020 has been postponed until 2021 is being hosted in Adelaide by the Cactus and Succulent Society of South Australia. More information can be found at

Cacticon 2022 is being hosted by The Cactus and Succument Society of NSW Inc.


What is a Get-Together?

A Get-Together is a similar event to a Convention but more relaxed and social affair. Again for financial members of any Cactus and Succulent Society in Australia or New Zealand. Get togethers are biannual (odd years) and again are usually a 3 day event.

The next Get-Together is being held in Canberra in October 2021 and is being sponsored by The Cactus and Succulent Society of the ACT Inc.
