I'd suggest focusing on core Haskell infrastructure, like compilers and tools, rather than individual libraries -- though it all depends on who wants to come along.

You'll also want to consider how a proposed OzHaskell might align and/or combine with other events such as SAPLING[1] and fp-syd[2]. There is also the ICFP programming contest in a few months that many people will be interested in...

Hosting is not a problem. If people want to come to Sydney then I'm sure we can organise a room at UNSW.
