Mutt as well. Where every dog can have its day

With more Australians than ever before choosing to holiday close to home, many are looking for dog-friendly destinations. 

The Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges - just outside of Melbourne - are pitching a range of guides and itineraries offering ideas for safely and easily travelling with your dog. 

These include a range of pup-approved accommodation options, wineries, cafes and a host of special events and activities such as Puffing Billy's Dog Express, Warratina Lavender Farm's Dog Day, Pooches and Pinot Wine Tours and more.

Ideas certain to get tails wagging (this region has the doggy vibe down pat) include Rob Dolan Wines lounging on big bean bags, Steels Gate Wines for a fancy vineyard lunch, Matilda Bay Brewery for brews with mutts and mates, as well as a range of pet-friendly accommodation such as Wiggley Bottom Farm, Bed and Bark and, exclusively for your pooch, Yarra Valley Pet Resort.

Pets are a huge part of families and we know how much visitors truly enjoy bringing their pet to the area to explore cafes and wineries that do more than just allow them, they welcome them," says Simon O'Callaghan, chief executive officer at Yarra Ranges Tourism

"In particular with many of the dog beaches closed or restricted during the peak holiday season, we have plenty of open spaces where pets can play on or off lead.” 

More than ever, dogs are increasingly considered a member of the family and regularly included in holiday plans. 

"We know that having a range of quality experiences allowing for visitors to safely and easily plan a day out or a week-long stay without the hassle of organising a pet minder or boarding is a great way for the entire family to enjoy the summer holiday season. 

"Going on a holiday can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for the entire family in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges.”
