The Great Melbourne Expedition: Sydney Labrador’s Epic 33km Train Network Trek

A bold little pup named Storm decided to embark on an unexpected escapade by jumping on a train and exploring the city. Storm, a cute white labrador, was caught on camera getting onto a Melbourne Metro train at Hoppers Crossing and was later discovered at Flinders Street Station, a whole hour away from where he first started his journey. Before this daring adventure, the adventurous pooch had traveled 33km from Sydney with his family before breaking loose and striking out on his own solo adventure. He was seen wandering around the platform at Hoppers Crossing before confidently hopping onto the train. An hour later, a train driver arrived at Flinders Street Station with the cheerful pup in tow, clearly delighted by his spontaneous city adventure.

In June, Storm the Labrador bravely broke free from his house and hopped onto a train in Melbourne, defying all odds.

The fearless pup was seen in Melbourne having a great time with his owners following his exciting escapade in the city. A train station employee approached the group, and the dog was escorted away on a leash to a shelter for dogs. Melbourne Metro Trains later confirmed on social media that the dog had been happily reunited with his owners and shared a delightful video of him frolicking in a park. Commuters who watched the video expressed their wish to have encountered the brave dog during their own travels. One viewer mentioned that it would have been the highlight of their day to have the dog hop onto their train. Another drew parallels between the dog’s adventure and a character from a well-loved children’s book, dubbing it as “Spot’s adventure day.” There were also playful remarks about the dog possibly needing a public transport card and jests about the dog providing a review of his train ride, with one person humorously suggesting that the dog’s critique would describe the train as a “tube-shaped transporter brimming with humans that transports you to another realm.”
