Hi Noon,

If you are asking about PyCon being in Melbourne because you find it
financially hard to get to Brisbane I would suggesting looking at the
financial assistance program that PyCon AU runs. It won't be able to cover
everything but it can help make things a lot more affordable.

As Tennesee said, PyCon AU changes cities every two years. The conference
has been to Sydney, Hobart and Brisbane so it is running out of Australian
capital cities to attend, Melbourne is bound to come up soon :).
