Bring your pup along to Skyline Drive In in Blacktown to catch the sunset and watch a movie. The perfect winter activity where you can snuggle up with some blankets and a good selection of snacks. And of course movies are made better when you have your furry friend curled up next to you!

THE CARRINGTON | pub
The Carrington is perhpas one of Syndey's most dog friendly places to dine. A cosy option during the colder months, this pub not only offers a delicious menu for the humans, it caters a seperate selection especially for pooches of course! Your furry friend can enjoy a meal of beef tartare, steak and veg or some pupcakes by your side.
JINDABYNE | alpine town
While ski resorts in the Snowy Mountains aren't dog friendly, your pup can still enjoy a snowy adventure in Jindabyne, an alpine town just on the edge of the Snowy Mountains. The perfect winter activity, your pooch is sure to enjoy playing in the snow as well as exploring the many scenic lakes and parks as well as dog friendly cafes in the area. For accomodation, we recommend looking at East Lake Travellers Lodge, Pender Lea Chalets and Tinkersfield which also has a Doggy Daycare where you can leave your pooch while you ski.

VINO PAW TOURS | winery tours
Wine and pooches are perhaps our favourite pairing and Vino Paw Tours make exploring dog friendly wineries just that bit easier. Enjoy private tours of wineries in the Hunter Valley and travel in a mini bus fit with doggy car seats and seatbelts. A great weekend activity to enjoy with friends, family and fur babies, of course.
