Sling meets and local groups

We have a fantastic network of local sling groups across Victoria and eastern Australia. Each group runs regular sling meets where you can chat to our peer educators and find out more about how to carry your little one safely and comfortably in a baby carrier or sling. Our sling groups also have access to a library of demonstration carriers which you can try out at any of our sling meets.

See all sling meets coming up

Most sling groups have an online Facebook community where you can ask for advice and find out more about local meets. While we do occasionally run special CarryAus members only events, you don’t have to be a CarryAus member to attend our sling meets – everyone is welcome!

If you would like to start up a new Sling Group in your area, or bring an existing Sling Group under the CarryAus banner please get in touch.
