So much more than just a walk and a picnic, our boutique picnic adventures are a way of connecting with friends, nature and our beloved pooches. Our guided walks are sniffari's for the senses. After all dogs experience the world through their nose and they deserve lots of mental stimulation - so why not give them a new adventure to brag about at the local park. Bella the Dog Welcoming Bus is your chauffeur, where window licking the scenery is encouraged and meeting new friends just happens!
Choose your pawfect destination - Torquay, Dandenongs or Hanging Rock. Chat and share stories as you wander through scenic trails - a chance to just breath and be in the moment. Your picnic basket of goodies is ready and waiting and the only decision you have to make is where your doggo wants their picnic blanket. A pawfect time to relax in the company of other peeps and paws.
We have done all the planning so all you have to do is bring your sense of adventure - oh and your dog!
A majestic 5.7km walk from Bells Beach to Torquay, simply pawfect! Just take time to be with your dog, like minded folks and the seriously awesome views across Port Philip Bay and Bass Strait. This is an easy grade walk which is Doggo Pram Friendly. Bella will be waiting for you with an individual picnic basket of goodies when you reach Torquay. We have planned it all right down to the glass of Sparkling over lunch, so all you have to do is pop on those walking shoes and grab the lead.
Wander the Puffing Billy trail from Cockatoo to Emerald and take in all the amazing smells. Such a tranquil experience and full of great doggo sniffs. This is an easy grade 6km walk, just enjoying other Peeps and Paws. Or if you prefer come on Bella and do a 2km walk at your own pace, depending on what your paws feel like on the day. Either way an individual picnic basket lunch of goodies with a glass of sparkling awaits you when you finish. No need to walk back, Bella is there to chauffeur you home.
Lose yourself at Hanging Rock with your pooch for the day. Enjoy wandering around this rare volcanic formation and try not to 'vanish'. Our Dog Carer will take you on a 3.5 km base walk where you will be mesmerised by the sheer rock face from so many views. Your individual picnic basket lunch will be ready when you return. After lunch you can decide to 'get lost' hiking to the summit while little paws get a massage or grab a coffee and visit the museum. This is a truly wonderful fun day out for all peeps and paws.
