Doggo Gumboots and Gin

Put on your most colourful gumboots, grab your pooch and join us for a day of Gin, Food an Walks with your dog on the Bellarine Peninsula. Bella the Dog Bus is cosy and comfy for all paws to stretch out, have a chat to their friends, or lick the scenery. There are easy walks to enjoy and a grazing lunch at the distillery with an open fire to snuggle up to. Our talented team will be there to pop a picnic blanket under the table, organise the water bowls, or take the dogs for an extra walk. Our small group, boutique styled tours are carefully designed so you can get in the groove with other like minded folks with your dog at ease.
