Pet Friendly Holidays in Queensland

Planning a pet-friendly Queensland holiday doesn’t have to be stressful. There are many parks, reserves, and beaches throughout Queensland that welcome your four-legged friend as a family member. Instead of boarding your dog, bring him along for your holiday and check out these awesome pet-friendly places.

Beanland Street Dog Park

This dog park in the Brisbane area features an enormous, grassy space for free play. Being one of the most popular dog parks around, your dog will enjoy socialising and playing with new friends. You can rest and relax at a shaded table or beneath the trees while your four-legged pal romps with pals.

Elanora Park

This Brisbane area park features a biking and walking path for your family’s enjoyment. A skate park and playground allow your kids to play while you relax under a covered patio. Picnic facilities and a fenced area where your unleashed pet can frolic make this a perfect place for your family.

Stoner Family Park

This Cairns area park features a spacious area where unleashed dogs romp freely. Enjoy the fitness station, playground, or sports fields before cooking up a meal on the barbecue. This open, green park has something for all members of the family.

Salisbury Recreational Reserve

This Brisbane area park features a dog park for boisterous play with other canines. Your pet will love the interaction with other dogs and the play time with you. This fenced reserve features two playgrounds, biking and walking paths, and flower gardens making it a wonderful place for the whole family.

Upper Kedron Recreational Reserve

This fenced reserve in the Brisbane area offers quirky artwork from recycled materials among its natural beauty. Brightly painted, concrete tunnels yield imaginative play and the large, sand area combined with swings and slides make this reserve a great way to spend an afternoon. Dogs must remain leashed but will enjoy the open spaces and shady retreats.

Trinity Beaches

Both North Trinity Beach and South Trinity Beach are pet-friendly, ocean-side gems. The picturesque sand bar gently slopes into the sea making it perfect for small children and pets alike. Since the beach is short, the kids and pets can frolic in the water while you relax in the shade nearby.

Machans Beach

Another seaside jewel, this Cairns-area beach is perfect for a quiet morning or evening walk with your dog. The beach isn’t too deep keeping kids and pets close while you rest in the shade.

Choose a Pet-Friendly Rental

Many hotels allow pets but have strict rules during your stay. Instead of being overly restricted, consider the freedom of a pet-friendly holiday rental. These private residences are like a home away from home for all family members. Many pet-friendly rentals have fenced outdoor areas where your pet can play and allow your pets to roam freely while you’re away.

 

Rentals are advantageous to you and your pets. There aren’t any noisy neighbors you can hear all hours through the paper-thin walls like at a hotel. For about the same price (or lower), you can rent an entire home instead of one room. Separate sleeping areas, functional kitchens, in-house laundry, and peaceful surroundings make rentals a better option for the entire family.

 

Your Queensland holiday will be more memorable when you bring your pet and visit these pet-friendly places and spaces.
