Spring time is finally here! Days are longer, warmer and we know that you and your dog are really feeling the extra bounce in your steps! So what could be better than a walk in somewhere new? Here we’ve compiled our favourite bush and park walks that you can enjoy with your dog in these warm and lovely days!
New South Wales: Just 13km from Sydney City Center, Wolli Creek Regional Park is Sydney’s pocket of bush. This spring, you can enjoy the wildflowers along the walking track and bring your binoculars for birdwatching while you go for a walk with your dog.
Queensland: Moreton Bay Marine Park, found right on Brisbane's doorstep, will allow you to explore the wide expanse of Moreton Bay and its offshore reefs, islands, wetlands, seagrass meadows, and sandy beaches with plenty of wildlife to observe. Just remember to keep your dog on a leash!
Australian Capital Territory: Lake Grinderra is the perfect combination of parks, dog swimming beaches, and off leash areas. One of the lake’s peninsula is entirely covered by a lovely park, Diddams Close Park, with mature eucalypts and exotic trees that you and your dog can explore together. Belconnen Dog Park is also close, with great opportunities for your canine companion to meet new furry friends.
Victoria: In the heart of Melbourne sits Yarra Bend Park, a large area of natural bushland featuring steep river escarpments, open woodlands and playing fields that you can enjoy with your dog. There are also off leash areas where your furry friend can freely exercise and run, if you don’t feel like walking too much!
Western Australia: Ellis Brook-Bickley Brook Walk, in Perth Hills, will surprise you with its rich display of wildflowers and the impressive waterfall aptly named Sixty Foot Falls. There are plenty of tracks that you can walk with your dog - and remember to check the view from the top of the fall, it’s perfect for your #instapup selfie!
South Australia: Sturt Gorge Recreation Park is situated 13km South of Adelaide. Enjoy the conservation areas, in this home of the greybox grassy woodland vegetation, and marvel at the ancient geological formations surrounding one of the many dog friendly walks. You won’t be disappointed with your choice to venture here!
Remember that dogs are usually not allowed in National Parks because parks are refuges for Australian native animals and plants. Leaving your best friend home when you go on an adventure can be hard, but luckily, if you are planning to visit one of the many amazing National Parks, you can book one of Mad Paws pet sitting services, and leave with the peace of mind that your dog is in safe hands!
