Fur Con News: The Strange Case of Aurawra

As you can clearly see Aurawra is a Sydney, Australia based for con. That has a story that I will guess you never heard before by any fur con, in the entire history of the furry fandom. This was taken from their FAQs

Aurawra Venue and Date Change FAQ

Why are we moving venues?

Our original hotel, the Novotel Sydney International Airport, has been appropriated by the NSW Government for COVID quarantine of international airline staff over the dates of out convention. As such neither our staff nor the hotel wish to risk your health or any cross-contamination.

Why did you change the date?

We did try to find a suitable venue on the same date, however our options were limited by both availability and budget. To give you the best con experience possible, we made the decision to move the date back to utilize a venue that suited our needs.

What do I do if I can’t come to Aurawra now?

You have two options. For any attendees who have booked their registration before May 10th you will be allowed to roll over your registration to 2022, otherwise we can refund your ticket. Please email us at if you wish to pursue either option. For Dealers, we will also roll over your table should you choose this option.

I have a room booked for the current con dates; how do I change the booking?

Your booking will have been transferred to the new hotel. If the room type you have booked at the previous hotel is unavailable at the new hotel, Novotel Sydney Olympic Park will be contacting you to confirm your booking.

If you were not booked under the con code, but were booked over the dates of the con weekend, the hotel will additionally be contacting you separately to determine whether you’re with the convention and move you across additionally. However, if you have not yet received that call, we suggest you contact the hotel yourself directly.

I haven’t booked a room yet, when/how can I book?

If you have registered at the convention, you will have received an email containing the information you need to register. You will need to contact the hotel directly via the phone line or reservations email. If you cannot find that mail and you have registered for the convention, please contact the aurawra support email:

What will this cost me?

If you are booking through the con rates, it should cost you nothing as all the transfers will be done automatically.

This is really late notice, could you not do anything sooner?

Unfortunately, we were given extremely late notice of this change ourselves and have been working hard to find a suitable alternative. We do apologize for the trouble this will cause, but we hope you understand we are doing the best we can

Does that mean that registration is open?

At the moment the convention is booked out and we cannot do at-the-door registration (due to COVID). However, If a large quantity of tickets become available again, we’ll look at having another sale of tickets. If this happens, we’ll be posting about it on our social media channels if we end up opening.

So not only is their a limit on attendance, but they lost their main hotel to do the COVID situation.

We here at Furry Times wish Aurawra the very best, and have our fingers crossed that all goes well

Aurawra (Australia) Announcement

Things have been quiet on the convention front, but we would like to give you a small update regarding our situation for 2021. As you all know, COVID has lasted far longer than any of us could have anticipated and the battle is far from over. Our team is currently working on strategies to ensure that we run our event in the safest possible manner for all staff and attendees involved.

As it stands we have been in contact with our hotel regarding the nature of ongoing restrictions and changes to policy regarding large events. If all goes well, Aurawra will be re-opening registration on Saturday 20th of March. The number of registrations will be limited by the current COVID restrictions imposed by the NSW Government and we are currently negotiating that number with the hotel. For those who have held on to your registrations from 2020, your place is already secured, while the official maximum number of registrations will be advertised when we re-open.

For Dealers, Panel Submissions and Volunteers, we will be contacting you shortly to confirm whether you still wish to hold your place for this year’s convention. Please keep an eye open for an email in the coming weeks.

We would also like to thank all of those who have stayed with us. Your continued support gives us hope that soon, we will be able to deliver a fantastic event for the Australian fandom. Until then, as always, stay safe and look out for one another.
