AusPet 2018 is the premier public pet expo for lovers of pets of any kind and is part of the prestigious annual conference and trade show for the Australian Pet and Aquatics Industry with major partner Blackhawk.

With an extensive array of entertainment, celebrity appearances, education and information sessions and exhibitors spread over a massive 6000 square-metres, there’ll be something for everyone.

The expo is not exclusive to traditional pets like dogs and cats. Visitors will be able to look at, touch, hold, pat and cuddle a diverse array of pets including fish, reptiles, guinea pigs, goats and more.  There’ll even be opportunities over the weekend to adopt a new family member!

AusPet 2018 will be a jam-packed weekend of grooming competitions and workshops, reptile introductions, pet first aid classes and you can even learn how to set up the perfect fish tank.

There’ll also be dog agility, police dogs, snake and reptile shows, face painting, jumping castle, pony rides, a petting zoo and more.

AusPet 2018 is also very proud to have Channel Nine’s Shelley Craft onboard as the expo ambassador who will be making appearances throughout the weekend.

All the activities at the event are complimentary with your entry tickets.
