Pet friendly Whitsundays

We love your pets here at Island Gateway!

At this time, none of our rooms are pet-friendly; but we do have pet-friendly sites – we have a special area with powered and unpowered campsites that is pet friendly, and we provide dog-poo bags for our guests. We can also provide information on how to enjoy the Whitsundays with your pet. 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; we have dog-poo bag dispensers in two locations in the Park.  When checking in, just let Reception know that you’d like a pet friendly site; you must also provide vaccination papers for your pet (for the health of all our furry guests!). We will give you a ‘Pet Rules’ form to read and sign and you will need to show us vaccination papers for your pet.   We have lots of curlews, rainbow lorikeets and other birdlife that make their home here, 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.

More info for dog owners

There is a ‘leash free’ park just 200 metres from the park, further down Jubilee Pocket Road (a quick two minute walk); a map can be found here.  It has open space for them to run around as well as a fully enclosed area.  The council also provides plastic bags for cleaning up after your dog in this park and there are picnic tables, a BBQ and taps, public toilets and a playground.  There is a list here of leash free areas throughout the Whitsundays and maps of each area are here.

We have contact details for a number of local pet-sitters, groomers and the local pet resort – just ask at Reception!

Such a fantastic quiet place for the family to stay in. Stayed in a cabin with 2 adults and 4 kids and it was very comfortable and clean. Undercover carport to park your car right next to the cabin. Toilets and showers were very clean and the whole atmosphere from the tropical gardens and birds instantly made you feel relaxed like you don’t want to leave. We loved the free daily bird feeding, heaps of lorikeets that come and land on your head, arm for feeding. Lots of photo opportunities. Pool area is fenced off and it’s a wonderful area to sit back relax and take a dip. My family will definitely be back here again. Thanks so much for providing a clean welcoming environment for us to enjoy.
