C&G’s Guide to Bayside Spots to Walk Your Dog

We understand it’s (very) cold outside - but we bet Buster and Figo are still clawing at the front door barking to get out and about! In today’s blog, C&G list our favourite spots to take your pooch for a walk – even a classic Melbourne winter day.

Brighton Dog Beach (Sandown Street Beach)

If your puppy likes a bit of beach and ocean action, then the Brighton Dog Beach is the place for you. It features a sectioned-off gated beach zone, so you won’t be worried if your pooch wants to run off the lead - they can’t go far! Hot tip – don’t forget to bring a towel in the car and dog coat – these Melbourne winds are chilly even for our furry pals.

Bayside Coastal Trail

You can really take in all that Bayside Melbourne has to offer on the Bayside Coastal Trail. It runs all the way from Beaumaris to Brighton and stretches approximately 17 kilometres. If you’ve got an energetic dog and enjoy outdoor exercise, this is the perfect bill for both. Do what you please - walk half or walk it all. You could even stop off at one of Bayside’s sidewalk cafes and call it a morning. 

Battle of Trafalgar Walk, Sandringham

Conveniently located at Sandringham Railway Station, simply hop off the train and begin this moderate 3.7km walk after work. Take a lesson in history as you traverse the various streets, named after soldiers in the 1805 battle in southern Spain. For more information and a detailed map of the walk, click this link.

Castlefield Walk, Hampton

Grab the lead, hop in the car and round up your dog. Drive to Hampton Community Centre where you can park for free, and begin the Castlefield Walk which will take you and your furry friend roughly 1 hour, travelling 4 kilometres in total. You start and finish right near the beach, so take in the bay views before or after your walk down at Hampton foreshore.

Bayside Architectural Trail, Brighton Church Street

Bayside boasts many amazing properties - so while your dog is lapping up the fresh air and out-of-house freedom – you can enjoy the sights of Brighton’s beautiful architecture on this lovely walk.
