The Laird is proud to present AWOL 2018 – A Week of Leather and Fetish.

The week that brings leather men across Australia to the Laird returns with a full program of events from workshops to the “big two” – Laird Laird Leatherman Competition and the sure-to-sell-out Code Black party.


"AWOL is undoubtedly the premier leather week on the Australian calendar.”

Stephen Morgan a.k.a Daddy Steve, Laird Leatherman 2015

With a range of events as diverse as our community itself, there’s something for everyone.

We hope you love our “Class of 2017” images as much as we do. Thanks to local artis Chris Wong aka Slumberus for his amazing work.


“AWOL is the perfect time for us rubber men to come out in support of our leather brothers!”
