Around The Bay

We meander down to Geelong for morning tea and some off leash romping. With the smell of the beach in their noses, there is more off leash time as we stroll along the foreshore from Point Lonsdale to  Queenscliff enjoying a guided easy 5km walk. Your individual picnic basket lunch will be waiting as Bella has scooted ahead to get it all ready for tired paws. After lunch we board the ferry crossing the bay to Sorrento with the pooches relaxing in the outdoor deck areas. Then an easy guided 4 km walk along the Sorrento cliff tops checking out the sweeping homes and trekking Millionaires Row. Bella will be ready and waiting at the end to chauffeur you back home.

Daylesford 

Enjoy morning tea at Trentham Falls followed by a couple of option to wander around Lake Daylesford. If you choose the full walk it is 3km, either way there are so many sniffs for the pooches to enjoy A relaxing picnic lunch is served in individual picnic baskets on the shore and some splash time is encouraged. We jump back on Bella to stroll around the market and then enjoy a train trip. With our talented team to take care of you this is just a simply Pawfect day with your dog exploring the spa country. Diesel recommends this one for Peeps and Paws looking for a great day out with a variety of walking distances and he just loves the swim in Lake Daylesford.
