Turn the car around: There’s a Dachshund race this weekend at Port Fairy

We’re dog obsessed at WKM – a road trip to Port Fairy for the annual Dachshund Dash? Nothing to it. Enjoy a day full of small long dogs ready to compete in all their sausage-like glory as they scurry across the finish line. Starting with a “Dogs breakfast” the day promises sausage sizzles, coffee carts and a parade down Sackville street followed by the namesake race. This year also brings an obstacle course and owner lookalike competition. Once you’re feted on as many short legged dogs as you can fit, be sure to check out Port Fairy itself, home to a bevvy of art galleries, wine bars and antique stores, as well as their famous beach and stunning lighthouse on Griffith’s Island. All of this excitement kicks off on Sunday the 11th. Register your saus or find out more details here
