PAX Australia 2019
PAX is a festival for Australians to celebrate gaming culture.
PAX connects the world's leading game publishers with thousands of their most avid fans in both video games and board games.
As Australia's largest gaming festival, the event includes panels featuring industry experts, performances, gaming tournaments, a showcase of Australia's best indie games and much more.
This hall is packed with exhibitors ranging from AAA publishers and developers behind the latest blockbuster games, to the innovative indie teams disrupting the industry.
The best way to learn about the panels is to check out our schedule page, typically opened about a month before showtime. We strive to see all aspects of culture and the gaming community represented in our theatres.
A mega-tournament spanning the entire length of PAX, this event features games of all platforms and genres. We start with 20 Omeganauts and eliminate players each round until the last 2 compete in the Final Round.
OMEGATHON SCHEDULE PERFORMANCES
Rock out with a couple hundred of your friends at nightly concerts. Our performances represent the full spectrum of nerdy music.
MEET THE PERFORMERS TOURNAMENTS
PAX features a full schedule of tournaments highlighting games from all genres and platforms. Expect the full schedule about a month before each event.
TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE PIN TRADING
Pinny Arcade is an ecosystem of pins you can collect or trade with attendees, Enforcers, and staff members throughout PAX. Get started with your collection a variety of ways, including at the Official PAX Merch Booth.
BUY PINS PINNY ARCADE SITE DIVERSITY LOUNGE
The gaming community is a wonderfully diverse place and the Diversity Lounge is meant as a celebration of that. Whether you count yourself among the under-represented, or just want to learn a little more about your friends, the Diversity Lounge is well worth a visit.
Each PAX has a series of features for those who have activated their badges including the Arcadia scavenger hunt, instant win prize towers, photo stations, and more.
The PAX Handheld Lounges are excellent places to take a break, relax your tired feet, and lounge around in bean bag chairs. You can also play handheld games there.
The PAX Arena features the very best players from around the world competing for your amusement. You can expect the full schedule to be released in the weeks before each event.
