Walk from any of our pet friendly accommodation Victoria and within minutes you will be at a beach or walking track, where your pets can run and play. Each of our properties has a brochure of dog friendly parks and beaches.

Remember our pet friendly accommodation Victoria has bowls and a towel for a rub down but you will need to bring your own leash for these wonderful walks, although some areas are leash free.

Dog-friendly Beaches

The one place our dog (Paddington) loves is the beach at Blairgowrie, it is the beach “du jour” for dogs and he loves to come together with all the other dogs and play. The only problem is when we take him down there he never wants to leave and runs off before we can catch him. He’s sneaky like that… (Camerons Bight 157 G11 Beach area between Stringer Road, Sorrento & Blairgowrie and Monument to the 1803 first settlers)

Leash-Free from 7pm to 12 noon the next day from 26 December to 1 March. Leash-Free at all other times of the year. Full Information on all Leash free areas

For the guest of honour

Whilst on your walk, don’t forget to bring along an Oh Crap dog poop bag, conveniently located in the property. These environmentally friendly bags are completely biodegradable, breaking down in landfill within 6 months and can be flushed down the toilet. Instead of plastic, they are made of Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) and will safely hold moist waste for about 2 hours. Make a difference and use Oh Crap.
