Dog Friendly Accommodation in Victoria

When you book one of our wine tours with your pooch, we pick you up from your home for your tour, (I know, so VIP!!) and drop you back at the end of the day (if your address is within 75kms of Healesville).

But if you are looking for a pet-friendly holiday in the Yarra Valley with accommodation allowing dogs, the good news is that the number of pet-friendly accommodation options in Victoria is increasing all the time. Yay.

Here are just some of the great dog-friendly places to stay that we can collect you from, in the Yarra Valley and Melbourne. We’ve added the owners’ names in case that’s helpful when you’re enquiring:
