Random Hacks of Kindness will be holding its Summer Hackathon at the 
Blue Chilli start-up incubator in Sydney, 28 November: 

Volunteers form teams to work on projects which have a social, rather 
than financial, outcome. There are two phases: those who want something 
built first have to pitch to the hackers and then the hackers work on 
the projects. There is a judging process (I am one of the judges) but 
there are no large cash prizes, just some t-shirts and your name on a 
perpetual trophy. There is no fee for taking part and no prior 
experience is required.

BlueChilli came to national attention when it hosted a Policy Hack, with 
Wyatt Roy MP, Assistant Minister for Innovation. It is located behind 
the Queen Victoria Building in the Sydney CBD in an old brick building 
(as incubators usually are): https://www.bluechilli.com/startups/
