New South Wales is a popular destination for dog owners, with many beautiful beaches, parks, and hiking trails where dogs are welcome (just keep in mind that national parks across Australia typically don’t allow dogs).
It can be challenging to find accommodation that is also dog-friendly, but there are actually many great options available once you know where to look. From pet-friendly hotels and Airbnb’s to self-contained cottages and cabins, there is a wide range of accommodation options that will allow you to bring your furry friend along on your holiday.

How do you know if a place is dog-friendly?

We like to use Airbnb with the pet filter for dog-friendly accommodation, but you can also search for dog-friendly properties on Google or Facebook Groups. You can also seek recommendations from other dog owners or local dog groups to find out about the best dog-friendly spots at your destination.
