Are you looking forward to this long weekend? All of us at the Daily Fluff sure are! Big plans in motion? A mini vay-cay perhaps? We can assure you that your furry friend is looking forward to having that extra day to spend with you. In case you’re out of ideas here are 3 things you can do with your pet over this weekend.
- A trip to the Mornington Peninsula:
What’s on? Well not only could you visit many of the sandy beaches, this weekend the Mornington Farmers markets happen to be on. Held on the second Saturday of every month, the Farmer’s markets give you the opportunity to meet the hard workers behind the wholesome food; the butchers, bakers and growers. The market is a go-to for those looking for sustainable, chemical free and less travelled food that is actually sold by those who make or grow it! With plenty of stalls offering a variety of goods, you are bound to find lots of goodies from cheeses, breads and jams to meats, seafoods, beers and wine. Talk about the perfect date with your pooch!
- Royal Botanical Gardens, South Yarra:
Covering 63 hectares with thousands of different plant life including beautiful flowers and extravagant trees, the Botanical Gardens is an excellent place to take your pup on that extra long walk you’ve been meaning to do! Dogs do have to stay on-leash but they won’t mind as the gardens offer an escape from the city and concrete jungle of Melbourne. It really feels like you’re lost in nature in there. And to top it off, a visit to the Observatory Cafe is a must for a cup of coffee, a glass (or two) of wine or a scoop of ice-cream (there’s a decent selection). Your pooch can enjoy it with you since it’s dog-friendly!
- ‘The Abby’ Abbotsford Convent:
An exciting dog-friendly spot The Abby, is open every day of the year which makes it the perfect destination this long weekend! Enjoy a fresh baguette from the Convent bakery (famous for their baked delicious goods) then grab a drink from the bar. To conclude, take a picnic and you can both relax and enjoy the live music on the grass. The grounds of The Abby are great for a walk and if you’re up for a splurge there’s also an award-winning restaurant.
These are only a few ideas for what you could do over this long weekend with your furry friend. So we hope you decide to take your dog with you when you head out on an adventure!
