Nothing makes friends out of strangers like pets. It’s unlikely that you’ll take your pooch out for a stroll without forging a friendship with a fellow owner (and with their pet!). Williamstown has an especially lively pet owner community, providing much opportunity for animals and their human companions to enjoy what the scenic town has to offer. When visiting Williamstown there are pet friendly accommodation options available at City West Accommodation
Off Leash Areas
You will find a number of off-leash walking zones in the Hobsons Bay area, so your dog can explore its full olympic potential or socialise with the locals. 12 designated off-leash districts are available, including park, lake and beach locations. Newport Lakes is recommended if you are after a touch of tranquility in nature. If you and your pet prefer a sandy stroll and a paddle in the shallows, Williamstown Beach allows dogs on leashes between 10am and 9:30pm from 1 November to 30 April and Altona Beach allows pets off leash between these dates. See here for a full list off locations.
