  • DOG LEAD: With your dog attached to it. Any loose dogs will be sold to the circus (not really, but please make sure they're on a lead).

Where should I park?

The best parking for Puppy Palooza is on Level 3 off Rosamond Rd - click here to see the recommended carparks.

Please note, dogs won't be allowed to walk through the centre, so we'd recommend planning your park in advance to avoid a long walk around the perimeter. The safety of you and your fur baby is our priority, so please be mindful of traffic, other dogs, pedestrians and vehicles when making your way to the event area.
What if my dog gets hungry or thirsty?

We'll have fresh water available for thirsty doggos at the Woof Cafe, as well as at the Puppy Parking. Dog food can be purchase on site from the Canine Wellness Kitchen Food Truck.
Can my dog come shopping with me?

As much as we'd like to get fashion advice from our pets, dogs are unfortunately not allowed in centre. Look out for the designated Puppy Parking poles where you can safely tie up your dog should you wish to pop in for a shop.
Will there be drop-in spots for any activities?
Collapse -
Expand +
Yes, for both the Pupwalk Fashion Show and Puppy Love Kissing Booth but they'll be limited, so we recommend coming down nice and early to avoid missing out.

The Activity Maze will be open all day for free play outside of the competiton between 10.45am-11.15am.
Can I attend without registering?
Collapse -

Absolutely! Registrations are only for guaranteed participation in selected activities. Anyone can come down and enjoy the fun!
