Dog Trip Melbourne: 52 Outdoor Adventure Guides for Dogs This book continues the series of dog/day trip guides. When I did the original review of Dog Travel Sydney: 52 Dog-Friendly Nature Adventures Guidebook, I knew that although I have many dogs in my life, I am primarily a cat person, but also a dog lover. . Probably most.

Dog owners traveling with their dogs will quickly learn that national parks across Australia are off-limits to our four-legged friends (except service dogs) and owners can struggle to find places to walk their dogs. Given the relationship between many hikers and their dogs, I appreciate the need for guides to give them the opportunity to get out with their four-legged friends, but it’s not always clear where dogs are welcome.

Like the hiking version of this book Melbourne Day Trip: A Guide to 52 Nature Adventures, the layout of this book is simple and easy to follow with the first division into CBD-related ‘zones’. The zones are:

Dog Friendly Day Trips Melbourne

Walks within these zones are grouped by distance from the CBD; 2-24km from the CBD and south, 8-82km north, 11-95km east and 11-130km west, which is a good way to work out how much time you need to walk. For starters and in many cases these distances depend a lot on where you start from. From there the key provides basic information such as walking distance, difficulty, amenities including cafes, barbecues, picnic areas and finally “on-leash/off-leash” dog options.

Five Dog Friendly Trips Around Regional Victoria To Take With Your Fur Baby

One thing to note in this book (as opposed to the hiking version) is that the walks are meant to serve not only people, but dogs as well. As for the author, his dog Henry, who is featured in this book, prefers to walk up to and around 6 km. If you are a dog owner, you know your dog’s limitations and preferences; It’s in nobody’s interest to try to push them beyond this. Evie and Andre have also added a number of walks closer to the city center to cater for dog owners who wish to access these walks without having to drive too far out of town.

The detailed sections for each walk are simple and easy to read with some nice little icons that make it easy to find the main features for each walk. The layout of the book, the language used and the overall presentation were also designed to encourage the common man to go on these walks with their dogs and in that sense they hit the spot. Walks vary from town, to beach, to bush, to waterfall, so there’s something for both two-legged and four-legged.

The design and feel of this book continues the trend set by the previous three books with high quality images of not only landscapes but also dogs in the environment and at play. This guide, like the others in the series, is very well done and most importantly encourages you to get out and explore with your four-legged friend, which is what a good dog trail guide should do.

Dog Trip Melbourne Guided Tour. Tours are organized locally and then remotely from the CBD. Looking for a fun day out with your dog in the Melbourne area? Whether you’re heading to the beaches or the mountains, want to stay close to the city or go on a road trip, I’ve got loads of ideas for dog friendly Melbourne day trips, all within a 2 hour drive of the city centre. Which of these fun ideas will you choose with your pup?

Dog Friendly Day Trips Melbourne

Melbourne is deservedly world famous for its street art. And spending a few hours exploring it on foot is actually a fantastic activity with your pup. Unlike art galleries, there are no rules against pets walking the paths!

Visiting Our Dog Friendly Winery

One of Melbourne’s most famous street art spots is Hoosier Lane in the city centre, not far from Federation Square. I also highly recommend nearby ACDC Lane and Duckboard Place, which are usually less crowded. Combine a walk with your dog with a visit to a dog-friendly cafe, in one of the city’s alleyways or on the banks of the Yarra River.

If you don’t want to venture into the city centre, there are plenty of great examples in other urban suburbs, perfect for pairing with brunch at a cafe or a drink at a local pet-friendly pub.

If you prefer a nature walk to a gray trail, a great place to get out of Melbourne is Yue Yang Regional Park. Located less than an hour from central Melbourne, this regional park welcomes dogs to join you as long as they are on a lead.

The Yu Yangs are named after the local aboriginal word for “big mountain in the middle of the plain”. The most popular hiking route in the park leads to the summit of Flinders Peak. From the top of this granite outcrop there is an excellent view of Melbourne and the Bellarine Peninsula. The return walk of 3.5 km takes about an hour, with a lot of steps.

Best Melbourne Dog Beaches

There are both short and long walks, including some flatter options. An easier option is the 800 meter loop around Big Rock. Just a 100m walk from the parking lot, don’t miss the short walk to the top of this granite outcrop. There are many picnic areas in the park.

A beautiful place to visit on a weekend trip from Melbourne that your pooch will simply love is Miss Drew’s Bakery and Dog Cafe on the Mornington Peninsula. Located behind Tyabb Pakumo and surrounded by antique shops, the dog cafe is open on Saturdays and Sundays. (It’s best to check opening hours in advance.)
