Enjoy a pawfect day out with your furry friends at Wyndham City’s FREE Pet & Animal Expo!

Held in the grounds of the Wyndham Civic Centre, this free annual event is a must for all animal-lovers, with a huge program of shows, demonstrations and free activities.

As well as providing an opportunity for pet-owners to pick up tips in caring for their pets, the Expo celebrates a wide range of animals, including birds of prey, native wildlife, farm animals and reptiles!

Head to the Dog Arena, for dog high jump and duck herding, fly ball and disc performances, obedience demonstrations and Husky sled pulls!

Watch in awe, with birds of prey and reptile shows on the Main Stage and head to the animal farm to meet lambs, goats, chickens, ducks and more.

In the Cat Hub you’ll be able to admire a range of exotic breeds and there’s even a free photo booth and illustrations for you and pet!

Browse through more than 45 exhibitor stalls, with everything from pet treats and fashion, to vet services and a mobile dog wash.

There’ll also be food trucks, live music and face painting for the kids.

Well-behaved, socialised pets are welcome and must be kept on a lead.
