Welcoming well-behaved pooches, Pierrepoint Wines is a small, family-run vineyard and winery with cellar door that offers a relaxing country retreat in a farm-stay, bed & breakfast style accommodation. Being a working farm, dogs do need to remain on lead at all times and resident dog, ‘Bear’ will most likely pop by to say hello and engage you in a game of fetch.

Providing a secluded and cosy sanctuary for all, The Royal Mail Hotel is a dream country getaway offering luxury accommodation at the foothills of the Grampians National Park.

With a rule of no more than two dogs per visit, your fluffy friend (or friends) are welcome inside, just don’t let them get on the beds or furniture.
