Yesterday Tiffany and I ventured off to the city to check out Farnsworth’s Republic For Dogs. As part of Melbourne’s SummerSalt festival, artist Anastasia Klose and her Basset Hound, Farnsworth have created a unique, temporary, off-leash dog park for Melbourne’s four-legged friends. Tiffany and I were definitely impressed!
The off-leash dog park has a unique Melbourne twist to it, with iconic buildings being turned into kennels for dogs to explore. You will also be able to find a small boutique, gourmet hotdogs, as well as wine and cocktails from 5pm Thursday-Saturday.
If you’re looking for somewhere fun to bring your dog, or simply enjoy meeting other dogs and their owners, I would definitely recommended checking this out.
They also have a few special events coming up including: -Dogs Breakfast (Saturday, 21st February 8:30-10:30am) More info at accaonline.org.au/event/dogs-breakfast -Family Art Day (Saturday, 21st February 10am-3pm) More info at accaonline.org.au/event/acca-family-art-day -Doggy Movie Night (Thursday, 26th February from 6:30pm) More info at accaonline.org.au/event/doggy-movie-night-presented-speakeasy-cinema-and-acca Location: ACCA Forecourt (111 Sturt Street, Southbank) When: 16th-28th of February Opening Times: 7am-9pm Getting There: Tram route 1 (East Coburg – South Melbourne Beach) runs down Sturt Street. 15 minute walk from Flinders Street Station.
