Puppy’s got a permit and they know how to use it – Paw to the floor baby.

After 3 years of boldly going where no puppy has gone before, and one year lost in space, the high tech hounds are back and taking their deep space tech n house exploration to the ends of the universe (just ONE hour from Melbourne!)

In 2018 our cyborg cyclops chihuahua returns from a reconnaissance mission of uncharted terriers, saving those adrift in the endless darkness of space that is the void between CHI WOW WAH TOWNs.

Recruiting the spaciest of audio cadets and most cosmic of creators, we gather once more to colonise the depths of the universe, building an intergalactic outpost deep in the Australien bush, a lost dogs home of galactic proportions.

This chapter, at Our Friends Farm, we will be offering our yappers a boutique 3-day camping gathering with cutting edge art, music and culinary delights on offer.

We’re introducing a Breakfast Banquet, a new concept inspired by our RANCH-O-RELAXO events, with a communal style setting, a place to gather and have your bellies full before a full day of proper fun!

CHI WOW WAH TOWN prides itself on fundraising for MS Australia, who fund research into better detection, treatments and a cure for this crippling disease. Yappers can contribute to the charity when buying tickets, at the gate with a gold coin or with supporting MS/CWWT branded camping cups available at the event.



Our Friends Farm, Tallarook. One hour north of Melbourne, straight off the Hume FWY.  We have a Shuttle Bus Service to and from CWWT-City, check our participate tab for details!

REUSE BYO cup or reusable bottles. No single use packaging

RECYCLE Ensure you sort your waste and recyclable goods end up

*No exceptions to this, the gate won’t be open 24/7 so please take note of operating hours and plan to come in the day as much as possible.


Not permitted (some exceptions can be made in certain circumstances)


For safety reasons, we have a NO Driving on site after dark policy! If you arrive after dark and wish to camp with your car, you are required to camp at top camp, near the entry gates. You will NOT be able to drive to a campsite.

If you need to leave site at night, then drive your car up to the top car park near the gate during the day. Please do not move your vehicle after parking until it’s time to leave!


Our Friends Farm is a licensed venue, whilst BYO is allowed, we must respect the conditions the venue is subject to under the Liquor Licensing Act.

CWWT is a limited BYO event. One bottle of decanted spirits and slab of cans per car is permitted, and if travelling on the bus, half a slab per person is allowed. Alcohol in excess of this will be confiscated. Strictly NO GLASS. Ensure to decant glass bottles into plastic prior arrival. Cars will be searched as a condition of entry.


Please be aware that CHI WOW WAH Town Centre (Event Space) which includes the stage, clubhouse, bars & all food outlets, where all the entertainment takes place, is a fully licensed area.

We have been able to negotiate a unique situation that allows patrons to BYO alcohol into the entertainment area for personal consumption. This means a single vessel /cup / drink bottle per person. Leave your 50 litre eski at the campsite. Large eskys, drink coolers larger than 2 litres and of course or any glass may not be taken into the entertainment area.

WHY? Two reasons:

1) We are operating within a licensed venue and your safety is legally our responsibility, especially while you are in the entertainment area. Excess alcohol can lead to unnecessary intoxication, health risks and anti social behaviour.

2) All of the bars at CWWT contribute the festivals ability to exist. CWWT is depending on everyone to buy a couple of drinks at the least. Bar prices will be cheaper that your local pub, served with love.

Sustainability is a huge focus please bring your own cup and enjoy the minimal waste ethos we are aiming for with our bar set up using kegs as much as possible!


Please note that NO fires or naked flames are allowed at any time.

There are only permits for fires attended to & monitored by the CFA.

A bonfire will be burning bright all weekend for your fiery comfort.

For safety reasons, we ask that fire maintenance is left to the local volunteer fire service that will be in attendance at all times.
