Travel Brochure
Many people pets are like part of their family and like to take their pets with them on holidays, especially those short weekend breaks. We provide the following information and links to assist you in planning your holiday with your pets.

Certain accommodation venues such as caravan parks and farmstays allow pets for certain times of the year and under certain conditions. Sometimes these are based on peak and off-peak seasonal policy variation. A 'Pet friendly' sign will come down to "manager's discretion". and you should always contact them to clarify that they will allow you to bring your pet and what conditions apply. This will prevent any misunderstanding and help avoid a bad experience, not only for you but also for your pet.

Remember, owners must accept all responsibility for their pets, use leads when required and attend to their pets toilet needs, as well as clean up after them.

Pet owners should always be aware and recognise that there are many people, including children who are afraid of certain types of pets such as dogs.

With holidays in Australia that involves a domestic flight, you need to check with the airlines to see if they will allow you to check your pet in as excess luggage, to be collected at the other end. You can hire pet containers from most carriers, but check with the airline for full details about taking your pet onboard. If you are concerned about how your pet will handle the journey, put something familiar such as the pet blanket or toy in the container.

Keeping your pets under control.

So remember, keep your pets under control. Clean up their mess afterwards. Do not spoil it for other pet owners who follow you.
