Every year at Furjam we think there should be no shortage of pub related events... Which is why Friday night will be an awesome night out at The Occidental, with our own booked room on Level 2. A private bar for all of your beverage needs, and plenty of room to relax, socialise, catch up, or meet someone new.

Please note:
  • Ears, tails, collars, leashes, costumes etc are allowed by The Occidental 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.
  • Unfortunately for this event, under 18s will not be able to attend due to the venue rules. However, a separate event will be organised closer to the date for any underage furries that wish to attend.

Paperbark Where: Sydney Park
When: 9am - 5pm
Map: Click here
How to get there: As there will be trackwork, you will need to catch a bus from central to St peters station, the park is across the road! Parking is also available in the park.
Fursuits: Heck Yeah!
Cost: $2 donation


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.

Fursuits: Yes
Cost: $10 entry

In an effort to find a larger venue for FurJAM (and at the same price) we will now be partying at Marrickville bowling club for this year. It's close distance to a train station makes getting there compared to the ESLC slightely easier. We will have a large segregated area in the main part of the club with entry into the club allowed at anytime, and entry into our area allowed after 6. The night will include uno and poker tournements, lots of dancing, a raffle, and lots suiting! (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!
  • This year there will NOT be a pizza run. So everyone is urged to either get food before hand, or at the clubs bistro. Service may be abit delayed with orders from a large group.
  • Fursuiters will need to remain upstairs at all times.
  • There is limited parking in the club carpark. But there is plenty of street parking
  • Open to all ages. However, all attendees will be required to wear wrist-bands. With distinguished wrist-bands for minors.
  • Management reserves the right to refuse entry to the event and eject anyone mis-behaving
