I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
Woof, Woof, Let's Go
Woof woof - the dogs have spoken! Gourmet Pawprints is now an award-winning tour operator in the RACV Victorian Tourism Awards winning the Silver award this year. It has also won the Hobson's Bay Business Excellence Award for 2019. What the dogs and their owners have always known about this professional, unique and fun company, has now been also acknowledged by the industry.

One of the most popular activities has always been the Doggy Picnic Adventures, where you and your canine friend spend a day together enjoying guided walks, while Bella the dog welcoming bus goes ahead to set up your individual picnic basket of goodies. Once all that energy has been spent, you are ready to enjoy a yummy picnic and socialise with like-minded canine lovers and your dog can even get a massage!

You can check out the destinations here. The best part of this whole day activity is that you don't have to drive anywhere, except to the meeting point at Port Melbourne. Bella is your chauffeur for the day and with climate control, dog seat belts, seat covers, blankets and plenty of space, this is the perfect way to travel. To get used to the other dogs and people, there is a socialisation session for the dogs by a professional dog carer; the human companions can do their own socialising and admire all the dogs before getting on the bus.
