Convention held April 9-11 1971 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It started at Melbourne Science Fiction Club headquarters at 147 Toorak Road, South Yarra, before proceeding to a Nova Mob party at John Bangsund's flat. "Melcon" seems to have been a term for a generic convention in Melbourne.

The Saturday venue was the main bar room of the Golden Age Hotel.

The Sunday venue was the Capri Theatre, Murrumbeena.

Guests of Honour were Greg and Grae (Greg McAlpine and Graeme Rutherford) of the Iron Outlaw comic strip in The Sunday Review.
