For values of two approaching three. :)

There's also the AUUG conference which overlaps all of these areas a 
bit; AUUG2005's theme seems to be "The Conference for Unix, Linux and 
Open Source Professionals".

There's also AUUG's Open Source Symposiums, though that might not still 
be running; it might've been replaced by the "Australian UNIX Developers 
Symposium, Adelaide" which is happening next month. Both those might be 
better classed as "local" conferences rather than national ones. There's 
also loads of special interest conferences/gatherings happening too, 
such as the Open Source Forums and the Open Computing in Government 

(It's also possible that OSDC should be thought of as a local conference 
for Melbourne, and that it'd be a good thing if there was such a 
conference once a year in both Melbourne and Sydney, and maybe elsewhere
