Pet friendly – travelling with your pet in the Whitsundays

We love your pets too! We have a special area with powered and unpowered campsites that is pet friendly and are very happy to provide information on how to enjoy the Whitsundays with your pet. Please feel free to bring your pooch to Reception to be admired by our Reception staff!

Unfortunately, we don’t currently have pet friendly cabins or rooms, but a map of our Park showing our pet-friendly camping areas can be found here.

So that everyone has a great time, we ask that you keep your pet on a leash and pick up after them.  When checking in, just let Reception know that you’d like a pet friendly site; we will also give you a ‘Pet Rules’ form to read and sign.   We have lots of ducks, curlews, rainbow lorikeets and other birdlife that make their home in the park, so please be aware of them when in the park with your pet.

Depending on the breed of dog, the number of dogs you are travelling with and the number of dogs already in the Park, we may occasionally turn down a reservation.

There is a ‘leash free’ park just 200 metres from the park, further down Jubilee Pocket Road (a quick 3 minute walk); a map can be found here.  it has open space for them to run around as well as an enclosed area for dogs still learning how to be ‘off lead’.  The council also provides plastic bags for cleaning up after your dog in this park and there are picnic tables, a BBQ and taps; though there are no public toilets in this park.  Other leash free areas in Airlie Beach can be found here; there is also a list here of leash free areas throughout the Whitsundays.

Ideas for dog friendly walks can be found here.  We have contact details for a number of local pet-sitters, groomers and the local pet resort – just ask at Reception!

There is an excellent website (click here) which can show you which cafe’s, restaurants are pet friendly; where to stock up on pet treats and supplies, and a great list of dog friendly parks and beaches as well as local vets and more.
