Melbourne… Australia’s national Pet Show is coming to the Melbourne Showgrounds! Mark your calendar for Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March, 2023 to experience and learn everything you need to know about dogs, cats, fish, birds, reptiles and small animals.

The Pet Show is all about positive pet ownership, sharing education, entertainment, and products for all pets from tails to scales and everything in between.

Bring your kids, bring your friends, bring your partner - there is something for every pet lover. We will have a range of different zones, special guests, talks, activities and entertainment at The Pet Show.

Be a part of something special. A superb national show celebrating the most loving family members in your life.

Part proceeds supporting the RSPCA. Grab this one by the tail today and don’t miss out on the amazing Early bird prices!

As a visitor to the show, we ask that your pet remains at home with adequate food, water and shelter. This is a human show to celebrate all things pets and we encourage you to share the spoils when you return home.
