Sydney Cove in '88

A Worldcon bid launched in 1975 by Eric Lindsay to bring the Worldcon to Sydney, NSW, Australia, for the bicentennial of the city's founding at Sydney Cove. The bid — probably announced in an excess of enthusiasm after the first Aussiecon — was overtaken by other Australian bids for earlier years, the first being Perth in '84.

Sydney Cove in '88 was not on the site selection ballot in 1986, but still received 16 votes. The right to run the 1988 Worldcon was won by New Orleans in '88 which went on to run Nolacon II. See 1988 Site Selection results.
