Paw-Ventures in Sydney + Beyond

Do you get sick of walking the same route with your dog everyday? It’s ok, we get it.

While there are plenty of cafes that offer trendy “paw-chinos” are dog-friendly and offer up the perfect location for that Instagram breakfast shot, sometimes we just want to explore new areas and discover what Sydney and the surrounding suburbs have been hiding from our furry friends.

Bay Run – Drummoyne

Who doesn’t love running alongside the water? While the track may get a bit busy, being one of Sydney’s most popular walks, don’t let this put you off as it is a fantastic lopped track. Another fun feature is the amount of waterside parks where you can let your pooch have a run around.

Afterwards, wind your way through the Eastern Suburbs of Bronte, Clovelly, Coogee and Gordon’s Bay, where your pooch is guaranteed to cross paths with a few dozen of its fluffy friends.
