  • Ears, tails, collars, leashes, costumes etc are allowed, but please leave your fursuits at home for tonight.
  • There is a pub bistro downstairs where food can be ordered from at anytime. Meals then can be brought back up to our room.

Sydney Park is an amazing place where you'll be able to run around and enjoy a day of fun outdoors. Play around in the Park (there's a big playground in it too), enjoy a great big BBQ. There will be a photoshoot in the afternoon. We'll try to be on time and adhere to a timetable this year, so people know when to get suited up for the big group photo we do every year. Sydney Park is literally across the road from St Peter's Train Station. Make your way to the BBQ area! You'll find our merry party there (look for a big Gay Pride flag with a pawprint painted on it, I will hang it high so it's visible). (Want to help out with the event? click here!). Fursuits are a big part of this event, but just keep in mind public sensibility.

Please note:
  • Dont forget to wear a hat and sunscreen.
  • Feel free to bring outside games such as frisbies, a cricket set, soccer balls etc. Anything you can think of that might be fun to do.

From 6:30pm the function room will be open and the venue is providing us with a pizza buffet for dinner, all cooked fresh on site. We also have a private bar, more competitions,including poker and the always funny art comp, a raffle and DJ Moski has kindly agreed to once again putting on another awesome music mix for everyone to shake their tails to afterwards. We will also have access to the beer garden and main bar, although these areas are shared so please respect the other patrons. Also keep in mind this is a licensed venue. Those who wish to buy alcoholic beverages from the bar will be required to wear a wristband, and under 18s must have a parent or guardian accompany them and may only attend until 10pm. (The majority of the equipment has been organised but any help we can get would be fantastic, as there are still a few things we need to cover! If you think you can help out with equipment lending or the night's entertainment, click here.)
Please note:

  • We will be in view of the general public so everyone should be on their best behaviour!

We have booked the back sports bar room which includes a bar, facilities and plenty of tables and chairs for relaxing, eating and drinking. For those arriving, the area is at the back of the hotel. If you enter from the side street then the doors should be right infront of you.
Cheers to a big weekend!
