FurDU (or Furry Down Under) is a furry convention that is held on the Gold Coast, in Queensland, Australia currently planned to reoccur in April of each year.

Although the convention was originally intended to be held in Melbourne, It was later decided, (and in conjunction with the original organizers relocating to Queensland) that hosting FurDU on the Gold Coast, a major Australian holiday destination, would prove more beneficial and encourage a larger attendance from the community.

FurDU's first ever convention was held at the 'Vibe' Hotel on the Gold Coast on 23 April 2010 and concluding on the 25th.[1] 80 were in attendance.

Both the convention registration costs and the choice of venue were planned in an effort to make attending an Australian convention as affordable as possible. The official website stated that attending FurDU for the three days it runs for should cost under $200 AUD for its attendees including all accommodation costs.[2]
