Year round expert advice to help you on your parenting journey
Psst! We’ll be back in Melbourne again soon with a special event...
At our Expo you can chat face-to-face with our wide range of Exhibitors to gain up-to-date, expert advice on the early years of parenting. You can also see, touch, try and buy the products and services that best suit your needs. Discover all you need to know for you, your pregnancy or young child!
With hundreds of brands at the Expo, our exhibitors provide a great mix of expert advice and parenting tips with the latest products related to your pregnancy and quality entertainment. You can even come more than once as your ticket gains you entry for every day of the Expo.
A variety of information and opinions are provided by experts in the Bupa Parenting Insights Live sessions during our Expo. You can also Meet the Midwives, find out about community services and ask manufacturers your product questions directly.
There is always a vast range of innovative products on display for whatever stage of the parenting journey you are at. Discover something new and try before you buy, there is even a parcel minding service so you can be hands free to continue enjoying our Expo.
A large range of activities and FREE entertainment is available to keep the little ones busy. We're excited to announce Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom as our new main stage act for 2015, with the full entertainment timetable available closer to our Expo. Off stage there are also play areas, face painting, an animal farm and much more.
Our Expo has extra wide aisles to accommodate prams and throughout you will find rest stations where you can take 5. Our Baby Care Rooms ensure you have everything you need to visit in comfort.
“My fiancé and I are trying for our first child and I feel it was inspirational and it will be an even better informative experience with (fingers crossed) a newborn next year.”– Kathryn Vanderweerd
“I could not fault a thing, I loved every minute of it, even my husband was impressed! He only came as my personal butler (bag carrier) but he really learnt a few things. I'm soooo making the 6hr trip again next year with my new baby (smile).”– Cate Catanzariti
