This year the Oz Kink Fest Fetish Expo will feature over 50 international and local businesses for you to peruse, with a wide range of products and services for you to test out, purchase and maybe even play with under the guidance of many of the gear-makers and designers themselves. It's an open and inclusive event not only reserved for 'kinksters', with members of the general public also more than welcome to come meet with experts in the field of fetish/leather/kink and alternative lifestyles for a fun, relaxed look at some thrill-inducing sugar and spice - and this year's event is expected to be huge. The market stalls will be selling everything from shoes to corsets, whips and chains – all alongside top-level entertainment, music suppliers, educational information and community workshops. It's a safe and informative environment where you can dress up or dress down - or maybe even be inspired by one of the highlights of the day: The Grand Fetish Fashion Show (at the Main Stage at 4PM). There will also be competitions and cash prizes for the best female/male/trans outfits from festival sponsor Adult Match Maker and performances by international and national artists on the Main Stage throughout the day.

Held at the same venue in the same space that is to be completely transformed into a party and play space with loads of equipment for use plus even more amazing performances on the stage for your pleasure.
