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.
Furry, Scaled or Feathered

Central Park in Malvern East is a great little park, perfect for a get-together, picnics and events and the City of Stonnington organises many of these for communities and people living in the area but also for visitors. Dogs are welcome in the park and on Sunday 24th March, you have an added incentive to come to this lovely park and bring your pets whether they be furry, scaly or feathered.

Pets in the Park is a fun day of entertainment, competitions, information and demonstrations all connected to our best-loved friends, our pets. The main stage will feature live music, pet parades, and presentations. There will be stalls offering the latest pet products, health tips and information on responsible pet ownership.

The day will be hosted by Network Ten's weather presenter Mike Larkan and Axle, the Fidget Spinning Staffy, will be on hand to show off his skills and assist with the Superstar Competition sponsored by PETstock. Amateur racing with the lovable and dynamic Jack Russell Terrier Racing Team will ensure fun and laughter as these feisty little dogs race to the finish line.

For those wanting a bit more adventure, The Rookeepers will provide wildlife encounters where you can meet dingoes, snakes, possums and even baby crocodiles.
