Dog Friendly Venues


Out & About

In Sydney we are spoiled for choice! With fabulous weather and a plethora of cafes, restaurants and pubs – there’s nothing better than including our pets in weekend plans.

According to Pets Medicine Australia “almost 40% of Australian households own a dog” making them the most popular companion animal.  Within our urban landscape and social city lifestyle, we are now more than ever integrating our beloved dogs into our daily lives.

We have put together a list of great venues across Sydney where you can take your four-legged best friend along with you!


If you haven’t been to The Grounds, it’s a gorgeous venue full of lush green walkways, multiple eateries and outdoor vendors. Dogs are welcome in most areas including the Potting Shed and terrace area. Be sure to call ahead to let them you will be bringing along your pooch so they can find the right seat for you.
