Cowes 2024 Cowes 2024

What and Where

The 28th Australian National Stereo Photography Convention is an opportunity for stereo photographers (from beginners to the highly experienced) and enthusiasts (from the simply curious to the totally committed) to come together to view, take and show stereo photos, to trade tips and techniques and to share some quality time discussing all things stereo in a relaxed, photogenic setting. Phillip Island is highly photogenic with loads to do, great places to visit, fine places to eat and is a fabulous place to rest and relax. Cowes is 140 km south of Melbourne and 1,000 km south-west of Sydney. It is most easily accessible by road but there are buses that run from Melbourne to Cowes and trains that run from Melbourne to Cranbourne from where there is a bus to Cowes. We’ll also try to coordinate car pooling as well as we can.

It will be held in the St Philip’s Anglican Church Hall at 102 Thompson Ave, Cowes, Phillip Island, Victoria over the weekend of Friday 3 May to Sunday 6 May 2024. The hall is on the corner of Thompson Ave, (the main street of Cowes) and Church St. It is on the left hand side as you drive towards the beach just past the Coles supermarket.

The registration desk will be open at the Hall late afternoon on Friday 3 May.
The program hasn’t been finalised yet but the convention will formally begin with shows and workshops on Saturday morning. There will also be shows on Saturday and Sunday evenings and tours, workshops and photo opportunities spread throughout the weekend. Saturday afternoon will be left free and the convention dinner will be held on Sunday evening.

Phillip Island has so many things to do and see that we can’t do it justice in just a weekend. However, we will arrange a couple of visits which will be included in the convention program and there will be time for a couple more during our time there.

The convention was a great success with participates from Melbourne, Sydney and NZ. We Look forward to the next convention in 2026, organised by the Sydney Stereo Camera Club.
