The Walk on the Wildside Symposia began in 2007. It has evolved into an annual event which is held annually in May in Brisbane. These days it is known as WOWS.
WOWS is a one-day event for clinicians and healthcare professionals working in the field of alcohol and drug treatment and rehabilitation. It is hosted by the Metro North Hospital and Health Service. Since it’s inception, Queensland DANA members have contributed to organising the event.
WOWS 11, themed ‘Do No Harm’, was held on Friday 11th May 2018.
WOWS 12, themed ‘Obstacle or Opportunity’ was held in May 2019.
WOWS 13, to be held in May 2020… cancelled due too COVID-19.

Selected presentations from previous WOWS are still available to DANA members. Send an email to [email protected] for more information.
