In case you're unaware, MashupAustralia is a competition being run by the Gov 2.0 Taskforce based on Federal and state government datasets released via data.australia.gov.au.
There are cash prizes on offer for developers who 'mash' the government data into online applications.
The full details for the event are as follows:

MashupAustralia Hacking Session
Wednesday, Oct. 14th
Level 5, Dreamtime, 48 Pirrama Rd, Pyrmount (Google Sydney office)
To support local developers working on entries for the MashupAustralia contest (http://mashupaustralia.org/), we're holding a hacking session in the Google office. We'll start with a brief introduction to mashups and tips for making them, do some brainstorming and idea sharing, and then get to hardcore hacking. We'll also have dinner and drinks to give us energy.
(Note: space is limited, so if we get alot of RSVPs, we may need to
say no to some of them. We'll let you know).
Anyone else - particularly within government - organising similar events around the country?
