Wyndham Pet & Animal Expo

Sunday September 11, Wyndham City Council hosted a Pet & Animal Expo and what an event it was.

Once the car was parked (which took a little while) and the pram was loaded up wet set off on our 10 minute trek to discover all thing pets and animals.

As a first time mum, I really wasn't sure if my one-week-shy-of-12-months-old daughter was too young for this event, but she loves our dog, seeing animals in books and on TV so I thought why not? She loved it! We had a few tears when she had to go back in her pram to move on to the next tent/display but was easily distracted from her despair by the dogs other attendees brought along with them.

There was a live performance by Paw Patrol along with a wonderful presentation by Dan from Reptile Encounters. My daughter even got to touch a norther blue tongue lizard! She was fine with the lizard - not so much with the Reptile Encounters guy holding the lizard!

With tons of stalls on all things pet and animals to a live petting zoo with baby animals there was plenty to see and do for people of all ages. Plus, of course, no event is quite complete without a coffee van for the parents!

My advice: put a picnic blanket in your pram - these events never have enough seating, pack a lunch if you're on a budget, have your camera at the ready to capture the wonder and delight on your little ones faces.

Check with your local council to see what events they have coming up; most of them are free to attend like the Pet & Animal Expo was.
