Autumn in Hobson's Bay ;-)

Today was another beautiful Autumn day in Melbourne! 
We decided to take the pugs to Williamstown to 
enjoy the beautiful weather. 

First walk (on leash) was through the Williamstown Botanic 
Gardens (Corner Giffard and Osborne Streets, Williamstown).
These gardens are absolutely stunning!

Mum I can't believe you are making us pose on this park bench!
Not going to smile. No way. This is silly!

Across the road from the Williamstown Botanic Gardens 
are the reserves along the bay. Hatt Reserve directly opposite
 is a dog-on-lead walking area, but just a short walk along the 
bayside path and you will arrive at Cyril Curtain Reserve, 
which is an off-leash area for dogs.

Sunshine! Walking in Hatt Reserve

 On our way to the rock pools ;)

We decided to take the girls down to the rock pools. 
Poppet enjoyed meeting a dalmation and laying in the sun 
on the sand, while Gypsy was splashing in water, 
chasing seagulls and hopping in and out of rocks. 
It is a great place for dogs, relatively quiet
 and exciting for dogs who love exploring
 (Gypsy is true to her name- she loves discovering new places).

Playing in the rock pools ;-)

 We love the bay!

Day 2 of splashing! Yayeeeee!

The big dog rock pool ;-)

Be sure to check the reserve signs along Hobsons Bay so you can 
choose a lovely place to interact with your dog in the gorgeous
 surrounds. Most are dog-friendly, you will just need to know 
which areas are off-leash ;) If you would like to check before you
 make the trip ~ here is the link to off-leash areas in Hobsons Bay
 from the City Council webpage:

We hope the sunshine holds out a little longer, we are loving
 the cooler days with streams of sunshine to provide just enough warmth. 
Perfect pug weather!

  3. I would love to include your photos in the soon to be released "Best of Williamstown" App for mobile devices.

    There is a section dedicated to dog play days and your story and pics are perfect.

  4. Hi Jennie,

    We would love to help dog-lovers get over to Williamstown to enjoy the outdoors with their owners. Could you link back to our blog? We would love them to stumble across some of the Animal Welfare groups we support whilst looking further into dog-friendly activities.

    We love Williamstown!


    KHEOM ;)
