COST: To make Converge affordable for everyone, the planning team has tried to keep the costs as low as possible. To do this they have set an entry cost, with additional packages that you can purchase depending on your needs.

The early bird fee for Converge is $99 AUD, and the regular cost is $149 AUD. The early bird runs out on December 1. This includes site entry, a campsite, and access to all programs onsite. It does not include meals, activities or tents/cabins. To make the event affordable, and also create that festival feel, campsites and tents are the main form of accommodation available. Within your Converge fee you receive a complementary powered campsite. This means that if you have a tent, mat and sleeping bag, it will only cost you $99 to stay for the weekend!

Here are the extra packages you can purchase:

Meal Package $75: 5 x meals. Friday dinner, Sabbath lunch, Sabbath dinner, Sunday lunch, Sunday dinner, Monday lunch. Each meal includes two courses and a drink. A special diet package cost $90, to cover the extra ingredients and time to prepare the customised meals. NOTE: Individual meals can be purchased on the weekend for $18 per meal.

Accommodation Upgrade - Cabin $285-$420: There are also a few cabins available onsite, which will cost you ranging from $285 to $420 for the weekend - why not get a few mates together and share the cost? A 5-bed cabin will cost you $285 for the weekend, a 6-bed cabin will cost you $315, and a superior 6-bed cabin will cost $420. The cabins are supplied with a thin doona and pillow, so you will need to bring sheets, pillow case and towel, while the superior cabins are supplied with all bedding. Check out a a detailed list of the cabins and their extras here. You can book by contacting Stuart Point Convention Centre directly here or by calling (02) 6569 0576.
