    We develop a new off-shell formulation for six-dimensional conformal super-gravity obtained by gauging the 6D N = (1, 0) superconformal algebra in superspace. This formulation is employed to construct two invariants for 6D N = (1, 0) conformal super-gravity, which contain C3 and C□C terms at the component level. Using a conformal supercurrent analysis, we prove that these exhaust all such invariants in minimal conformal supergravity. Finally, we show how to construct the supersymmetric F□F invariant in curved superspace.
