Commonwealth Park

Big Paws Walk


The Big Paws Walk is our main walk and begins at 11 a.m. from Stage 88, Commonwealth Park. It goes from Kings Avenue Bridge to Commonwealth Avenue Bridge and back to Stage 88. The Big Paws Walk is approximately 5km.



Mini Paws Walk


The Mini Paws Walk begins from Stage 88, Commonwealth Park at the same time as the Big Paws Walk and takes you on a scenic route around Nerang Pool. This walk is perfect for young families, puppies and older dogs who can’t quite muster the Main Walk. The Mini Walk is approximately 1.5 kilometres. Make sure to arrive early to join pre-walk activities!

The Million Paws Walk event is held in rain, hail or sunshine so please dress appropriately.


Dress Up Competition

This year will be the 20th Anniversary of hosting our Million Paws Walk in Canberra. This means that the first ever Walk was held during the 90s (can you believe it!). It is definitely time to celebrate and we'd like to take you all the way back. The dress up competition theme for this year will be 90s. So come dressed in your double denim to be in the running to win some fantastic prizes.
