Plan your pet friendly holiday in the beautiful, unspoilt Shoalhaven

Pets are such fun loving, adventurous and loyal members of the family, so it's hard to imagine waving goodbye to them as you head off on a holiday without your furry buddy. Luckily the unspoilt Shoalhaven is recognised as one of Australia’s leading pet-friendly destinations. Our unique mix of pet-friendly accommodation and activities offers visitors the ultimate pet-friendly paradise. Lose the guilt of leaving your mate behind when you go on holiday – if you’re coming to the Shoalhaven your pet is welcome too! 

 

A Perfect Pet Playground

The Shoalhaven’s off-leash areas include beaches, parks, rivers and trails, perfect for running or just relaxing and full of new smells to discover. You can find our off leash area info here. At Shoalhaven Heads there is a 24 hour off-leash area on Seven Mile Beach as well as the River Road Reserve, where your pet will likely find lots of other friends to run around with. You can bring your pet when dining nearby at the Shoalhaven Heads Hotel and Coolangatta Estate Restaurant. In Ulladulla there are two 24 hour off-leash beaches – Collers and Ulladulla Harbour North Beach. There are plenty of places around Mollymook and Ulladulla to stay and even camp with your pet, and they are welcome to trot along beside you as you browse the Ulladulla Harbour markets. Bring your pet to Cupitt's Winery to play with their resident dog, while you sip on delicious local wine, stretch out on the lawn and enjoy the view over the vineyards.

 

 

Dos swimming in waves

Whether its pooches, pussy cats or ponies, we offer an unrivalled selection of pet-friendly accommodation options including cottages, cabins, units, and tourist caravan and camping parks. If your pet needs to stay somewhere else, consider dog and cat boarding kennels where they can enjoy their own relaxed (and even glamourous) getaway – and you can pop in and give them lots of cuddles so they don’t miss out on all the fun! Looking for an adventure that will be sure to get the tail wagging? You've come to the right place. Check out our Shoalhaven Pet-Friendly holiday trail here!
