A Dog is Man’s best friend. But how many of your keep that friendship? Whenever you plan your holidays, the first concern that occurs in your mind is how and where to keep your pets when you are out on your trip. Dogs have emotions too, and they don’t like to be left alone. So here is a chance for you to take along your pets on your caravan trips and enjoy with them. We have come up with some dog friendly caravan parks in Australia so you can look them up and schedule a stay at these locations on your next outing.
A-Line Holiday Village
Peaceful and spacious, this is one caravan park will give you the freedom to explore the sights and sounds of the place while ensuring that you get your privacy. This is a great spot and is frequented by families all year round. The bookings start from $25 and they allow small dogs but only for caravan site bookings. This park is located on the Calder Highway on the Melbourne side of Bendigo.
Beechworth Holiday Park
Nestled in the Beechworth Historic Park and cradled at the junction of the Spring and Silver creeks, this park offers peaceful accommodation that ranges from cabins (suitable for 2-6 people) and full sized holiday houses. In order to cater to the campervan groups, the park has powered and unpowered sites where caravanners may simply park up, spread their annexes and awnings and enjoy the outdoors. Some of the perks in this place are free Wi-Fi, solar heated pool, dump point, children’s playground, camper’s kitchen and cricket net/basketball ring.
And hold on, the place also allows your pets to stay with you as long as you make sure that it is on a leash at all times. You can take your dog with you in the cabins but you need to take permission for that. But when you have your own personal space in the caravan annexe, then who needs a cabin? Also you need to ensure that any waste left by the dog is cleared by you and don’t leave your dog behind (why would you?). Bookings at Beechworth Holiday Park start at $28.
Best Friend Holiday Retreat
This is one of the most dog friendly parks in the continent. The place has proper fencing around the cabins so that when the pets sleep inside, there is little chance of them escaping into the wild. Fencing is also provided on camping and caravanning sites. So you have your own personal enclosure along with your caravan annexe. However, the caravan and camping sites are only available from mid-September to the end of April and the bookings start from $42.
Now you would want your pets to experience freedom also as no one likes to be leashed all the time. Don’t worry, the park has adequate provisions such as Fenced off-leash dog exercise areas, hydrobath hut, and playgrounds for dogs where your pets may have the time of their lives. The playground has jumps and tunnels where you can watch as your pets run around and explore the area while enjoying themselves. Trust me, your pet is going to be very thankful for your care and for bringing it along on the trip.
BIG4 Castlemaine Gardens Holiday Park
This is a truly amazing park overlooking the heritage listed Botanic Gardens and Lake Joanna. The cabins are clean and comfortable and you can select from a wide range of options that vary in terms of cabin types and the applicable costs. The place also has powered and unpowered sites where caravanners may simply park their vehicles and set up their camps or annexes.
For the pets, you may need to take the permission of the manager in order to get your dog on certain camping / caravan sites. You would also have to ensure that the dogs are supervised at all times and care should be taken to keep them in place. The best way to treat your dog here is to take it on a walk to the adjacent botanical gardens and park. Bookings for the BIG4 Castlemaine Gardens Holiday Park start at $28.
