Sometimes, our dogs need a little getaway too. Travel with them to Warratina Lavender Farm in the Yarra Valley for their first ever dog event. Browse a doggy market and find beautiful gifts for your furry friend, book them in for a professional pet photography session, join a dog training session, watch competitions and more! This adorable Dog’s Day Out will take place on Sunday March 6.
Warratina Lavender Farm
At just an hour’s drive from Melbourne, on the foothills of Mount Dandenong, you’ll find this magical lavender farm. With 10 acres of land and over 10, 000 rows of lavender plants, there’s plenty of room to stretch your legs. Although most of the lavender has been harvested for the season, there are still a few rows left in bloom, so that you and your dog can enjoy its beautiful fragrance.
At the farm, there will be “Best in Show” competitions and agility demonstrations so that you can show off your pet and win cool prizes. You can enter your dog in the competition on the day.
For pets that need a little extra love and care, there will be vet checks, physio checks and dog training sessions too.
Take your pup to the pamper area and enjoy a mini grooming session, then, capture the magic of the day with a photoshoot.
Meanwhile, the Posh Palais has taken over the café so that you can enjoy tea, coffee, sweets, lavender ice cream and savouries. There will also be refreshments from their Garden Bar, and gourmet doggy treats to keep your pupper happy.
Posh Picnics at Warratina Lavender Farm
If you enjoyed the doggy day out, why don’t you come back to the farm for a sweet-smelling luxury picnic experience? Nestle down in the private garden, and enjoy a grazing platter, sweet treats and drinks over four elegant hours. The Posh Palais team do all the setting up and packing up for you, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Similarly, you can also pre-order a picnic hamper and choose your own spot to enjoy.
Otherwise, check out their garden bar, relax on a couch and enjoy boozy beverages and grazing boards from 12pm to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
