There are plenty of neighbourhoods and venues in Melbourne that will welcome your pets, but nowhere is that more apparent than on Chapel Street. The four-kilometre stretch has been officially named as the first major shopping precinct to go permanently pet friendly.

There are currently more than 300 pet-friendly businesses on Chapel, including some of our favourite haunts like Leonard’s House of Love and Hawker Hall. These pet-friendly venues will be easier to find now thanks to “paw on the door” stickers that’ll let those out walking with their dogs (or cats – you do you) if their four-legged friend can come inside.
