Pet-Friendly Holidays in Victoria

Taking a Victoria holiday doesn’t mean you have to leave your much-loved pet behind with a pet sitter or at a kennel. Travelling to Victoria with a four-legged friend allows you to experience some one-of-a-kind spots you may not have seen otherwise. When you’re planning your holiday, make sure to include these pet-friendly places.

Pepi’s Land (Puffing Billy Walking Track)

This area recently became a leash-free zone where dogs run at will. Virtually unknown, this wide-open greenway is perfect for a quiet walk or some private bonding time with your four-legged pal. The area is part of the Puffing Billy Walking Track. This track runs from Upper Ferntree Gully to Belgrave along the historic routes of Puffing Billy — a hundred-year-old steam train that still runs today.

Montague Park

This big, leash-free park near Frankston is very dog-friendly. The large playground area is a recent addition that makes this park a nice place for a family to spend an afternoon. With flat, gravel trails for an early morning or sunset walk and an open, grassy area where your dog can run freely, this park is a fine place.

Greenmeadows Gardens

This Saint Kilda area park is quiet and peaceful. Paved walking paths wind through the manicured flower gardens. A playground for your kids and open green spaces make this park perfect for the whole family.

Flinders Beach

This Dromana area gem is rarely crowded. The sugar-sand beach meets clear turquoise water with calm, lapping surf that’s safe for kids of all ages. The sand bar is wide, so you’ll want an umbrella. Kids and dogs will love having the beach nearly to themselves for playing and romping through the surf.

Dava Beach

This secluded Frankston area beach is perfect for a peaceful walk or afternoon of sunbathing. You must walk along Birdrock Beach for access to Dava Beach, but it’s worth the effort since most visitors won’t walk the extra distance to this quiet retreat.

The Dog Play Park at Knox Park Reserve

This Melbourne area park is for the dogs! This fenced park offers many features your pet will love. The high fencing keeps even the most rambunctious dogs contained allowing them to safely run free. Agility obstacles like hurdles, weave poles, and tunnels combined with interaction with other dogs makes this park a pet’s paradise.

Altona Dog Beach at Burns Reserve

Geared for dog and human play, this beautiful beach near Melbourne brings owners and pets closer. Spend the day frolicking in the surf that’s calm and safe for dogs and children. One of the area’s only beaches where dogs roam unleashed and free to play and swim in the sea, this beach is delightful.

Perfect Pet Accommodation

Instead of staying in an over-restrictive hotel environment, choose a pet-friendly holiday rental. Some of these holiday rentals are private homes that understand the affection you have for your pet, and they may have fenced outdoor areas that allow your pet freedom — something that’s nonexistent at a hotel. Instead of being in a crate, your four-legged friend can relax or play while you’re out.

 

For the same price (or less) you can rent an entire home over your holiday. Rentals are quiet, private, and offer all the comforts of home including equipped kitchens and laundry facilities. Many rentals include internet service and satellite TV.

 

Planning a fun-filled, family holiday doesn’t mean you have to leave your beloved pet behind.
