Top Pet-Friendly Camping Sites
Camping is a family favourite activity for many of us. It is a chance to spend time outdoors, enjoying the company of friends and family surrounded by nature. We are not the only ones who love camping though. Your four-legged friends also love to run around and go camping. It is only fair that if we are going to go camping, that Rex comes to, right? There are certain campgrounds that allow pets and others that do not. Here are our top pet friendly camping spots in South East Queensland
Amamoor Creek Campground
Located about 2 hours North West of Brisbane Amamoor Creek camping area is secluded within the national park. It is a beautiful spot to take the family. There are basic amenities, woodfire BBQs and also bike tracks around the area that you can enjoy. Pets are allowed at the campground, however they do need to be on a leash at all times. You can take them for a walk on their leash through the lush grounds before settling by a fire at night.
Neurum Creek Bush Retreat
Neurum Creek Bush Retreat is a beautiful spot. Just over an hour from Brisbane near Woodword, it is well worth the drive. There is access to lush greenery that is perfect for your pupper to run around on and burn energy. There is a creek made for canoeing and a swimming hole that you can all have fun splashing around in.
Watching the stars of a night under a tree with your family and pets will make it a trip to remember.
Boreen Point Campground
Boreen Point is lime a dream. Situated just above Noosa, you’ll find pristine waters just steps away from your camp and uninterrupted views of the natural surroundings.
The sites are set in practically untouched bushland. It gives you a sense of privacy for your stay. There are plenty of places to walk and explore. Dogs are allowed however you need to fill in an application to begin with – so make sure you do this and don’t just turn up with your furry friend unannounced.
Borumba Deer Park
The Deer Park is a very popular camping option for many families throughout the year. It is situated on the Yabba Creek approx. 2 hours from Brisbane. The creek is perfect for swimming, splashing and canoeing in. You can also head a little further down to the dam and take part in water sports such as jet skiing.
The best part is that you can bring your dog along for the trip. You do need to pay an additional fee for your dog to attend with you, but it is definitely worth it.
Camping with your dog is a pretty simple process. Before booking your campground, find out the restrictions and requirements around whether you can bring your pets with you. It may be that you need to pay a little extra or ensure that they are kept on a leash.
And remember, for those trips, you plan where Rex simply can’t go with you, there’s always Kat’s Kritters Pet Sitting service in Brisbane.
Enjoy your camping trip.
