60+ Years

of Fire Australia

A long and proud history

The Fire Australia Conference and Tradeshow has had a long-standing history of advocating positive change for the fire protection and safety industry in Australia.

Over 60 years of Fire Australia

The first Australian National Conference on Fire was held on 23-26 August 1965, in Melbourne. Presented by The Australian Fire Protection Association, now known as Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia), the conference was chaired by Harry W. Marryatt and included panel sessions, industry and regulatory updates, and key fire protection presentations across a range of topics.

Fire Australia has evolved over the years and now attracts 2000+ attendees, providing access to key professional development, networking opportunities, the ability to learn from key fire protection and safety industry experts and connect with over 80+ local and international Tradeshow exhibitors, showcasing hundreds of industry leading products and services.
