totally nothing.
sure, people like anime over here but there's nowhere to cosplay. :/
i'd never even heard of cosplay cons until i went on the internet because australia seems to have nothing of the sort.

Then you simply haven't been looking very hard.

Australia has the following conventions with some sort of anime content: (there are others based more on games and/or comics that I don't know much about)

Manifest (Melbourne - best/biggest anime only con in Australia)
Wai-Con (Perth)
AI-Con (Hobart)
AVCon (Adelaide)
SMASH (Sydney)
Supanova (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth)
Armageddon (Melbourne, Sydney, New Zealand)
Animania (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane - worst con in Australia)

These days, there are plenty of events to cosplay in, particularly in Sydney where the cosplay community's quite large. Not only are there many conventions to choose from (or attend all of if you will), but we also always hold cosplay birthday parties and everything :)

And you can always go to http://cosplayaus.deviantart.com/ to keep up to date with the community. ^^

I would love to go to a con but unfortunately I'm quite young and my mum rarely let's me go to places nearby like the beach let alone to a con (which I'm assuming is in a city too far from where I live, I need to do a little research) Besides anime/manga fans are nearly nonexistent in my area....let alone any Hetalia fans (I love that anime XD)

Can't help you with nearby cons if we don't know where you are ;)

Queensland, near Brisbane?

Only events there are Supanova, a pop culture expo, and a mini con, Animania.
Animania runs in Brisbane twice a year with 6 hour Future Card Buddy Fight day events. It is quite over priced for what they run.
Supanova is mostly about the traders and is more focused on sci fi then anime.
Both have anime and cosplay content, but not as much as you would get elsewhere, such as in Melbourne or Sydney.

Now I wish that I could move to either of those places. Or to someplace like America or Canada.

Move to America? Visit maybe. Move there? no. Not until the American people finally stop listening to the pointless fear mongering and paranoia spouted by their government and destroy DHS and TSA. They have better things to spend their tax dollars on then government departments that continually break the law and ignore the Constitution.

Anyway...
Flights from Brisbane to Melbourne for Manifest weekend are about $100 each way.

Just got back from Supanova, Brisbane. It's not too bad although the only thing to do there was buy merchandise, get photos with cosplayers and socialize. But it was really interesting and I wouldn't mind going there again.
