The Essential Baby & Toddler Show is one of Australia’s biggest parenting events that showcases new products from all around the world. The weekend event also features entertainment, talks, seminars, and hands-on activities for parents and kids alike.

There will be something for everyone, no matter what stage you’re in in parenthood or pregnancy.
