Southern Paws is Back

It's official! Running from the 30th of April to the 3rd of May, we're returning to Waipara Adventure Centre for a whole new weekend of furry nonsense. Get out your long coat and hat and holster those laser pistols. We're off to explore the wild, lawless frontier... the final frontier!

To everyone who attended in 2019 - thank you! You helped make the event an amazing weekend for all of us, and we hope to see you back again this year.
