For those in Victoria interested in getting into the exciting, fun-filled, and not-at-all-exploitative game development scene in Australia, you might want to check out Ballarat GIG, "Australia’s largest regional computer games career expo", a free, public event showcasing some of the local development scene:
Friday is targeted at students and focuses on talks about entering the industries and the opportunities it offers; while Saturday offers unstructured time with the developers, a hands-on approach to games with new Wii, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC titles available for the public to play, and a variety of competitions offering big prizes to test visitors sense of fun and skills. The Ballarat GiG Guitar Hero Idol guarantees laughs with success based on how hard you rock and not how well you score, whereas the more serious events offer more serious competition and prize money running into the thousands.
Representatives from companies like Firemint, Big Ant and Blue Tongue will be there as well. The press release has some more information about the event.

The event kicks off on Friday July 22nd and runs over two days in Ballarat.
