Looking for pet friendly accommodation in New South Wales? We know you’re raring to get out of the house and out and about, but which spots will accommodate both you and your fur friend? We’ve rounded up some options.

New South Wales is one of the last states in Australia to have their final lockdown lifted, so we’re sure you’re chomping at the bit to get away. Or, perhaps you’re from interstate and keen to share some tourist dollars (if so, welcome!).

If you’re anything like us, you want to take your dog or cat with you. We’ve researched pet friendly accommodation in New South Wales for any taste, be it a beach house, hotel, caravan, or camping ground. Check them out below then read our tips for travelling with pets.

Pet friendly house rental

Sea Horse Diamond Beach, Diamond Beach

Sea Horse Diamond Beach on the mid north coast is big on pet accommodation. In fact, a reviewer on their website describes them as ‘the ‘Unicorn’ of dog friendly holiday accommodation.

Sounds good to us.

They offer luxury accommodation with dog friendly beaches, a spacious fenced yard and gardens.

They allow up to three dogs per stay, and even have a Doggy Day Pen for when you need to go out, which includes a large comfortable dog house, raised sleeping platform and trampoline beds.

Before you head there all tails wagging, be sure to read our guide: ‘How to keep your dog safe at the beach’.

Pet friendly cabin

Lakeside Inn, Wollongong

Enjoy a breakaway right on the water’s edge of the stunning Lake Illawarra on the south coast. Lakeside Inn has a variety of room options, with their Lakeside Cabins open to pets. Pets are allowed on request, so remember to make an inquiry; charges may apply.

Nearby you’ll find sites of interest like the Nan Tien Temple, Historical Aircraft Restoration Society Museum, Wollongong Golf Club, Shellharbour City Stadium and WIN Stadium.

Beaches close by include Windang Beach, Port Kembla Beach and Warilla Beach. Take your pet along on one of their walking tours, or to go fishing. No wonder they call it a dog’s life.

Cruisin In offers a track straight to the beach, so wake up, put on some sunscreen, and get you and your fur friend out and about. Or barbecue, hike or fish.

Pet friendly camping

Thinking of heading to the good old outdoors for a camping vacay with your fur friend? Located in the Upper Hunter Valley region, Coachwood Campside is a free camping ground that welcomes the four-legged.

Pet friendly caravan park

Narrandera Caravan Park

Looking for a caravan park that allows a bark (or meow)? Narrandera is located in a peaceful rural setting 2km from the Narrandera town centre, and offers self-contained cabins and caravanning or camping.

As their website states: “Narrandera Caravan Park understands that your pet is a part of your family, so you are welcome to bring them 365 days a year.” This is the Riverina region of southern New South Wales at its best!

Park out on their flat, grassy terrain and let your pet unwind, just like you. Facilities include a camp kitchen with a fridge/freezer, microwave, under cover barbecue and washing machine.
