Dog-friendly travel options

With pet-friendly places to stay and lots of great walks (and runs) to do, there’s no need to leave your pooch at home when you visit Deniliquin.

Places to Stay for Pets

While you might think it’s hard to find a room in a hotel or motel that allows pets, you’ll be surprised to learn that several of these accommodation options in and around Deniliquin are, in fact, pet friendly. You’ll also have lots of luck when looking at self-catered accommodation such as holiday homes, or enquiring at any of the B&Bs in the region. You’ll find that some hosts even have pets themselves and are happy for you to bring along a friendly companion.

Just a short drive from the Deniliquin town centre, the Pioneer Tourist Park welcomes guests with dogs too. In fact, they’ll tell you that “pets can bring as many humans as they like”. The BIG4 Deniliquin Holiday Park and Deniliquin Riverside Caravan Park also allow dogs at selected sites, but they must always be leashed.

The Wanganella Cottage is another pet-friendly property. The cottage offers an enclosed garden for your pooch, along with dog leads, kennels and food bowls.

Eating Out With Dogs

Given the typically mild and sunny weather in these parts, eating out with your pet is easy. Picnics and barbecues are a natural fit for pet owners, but it doesn’t end there. Tie your dog up at your table at a café with outdoor seating – the riverside Crossing Café is a good start – or head just north of town to the friendly Wanganella General Store, on a pretty bank of the Billabong Creek, for a lunch or early dinner at the outdoor tables.

Pet-friendly Activities

With lots of park and river frontage in the region, your four-legged travelling companion is spoilt for choice when it comes to burning off some energy. Bring your leash and walk your dog in the Island Sanctuary – four hectares of bushland and walking tracks right next to the main street in the heart of Deniliquin. If you’ve got more time, do the full Beach to Beach Walk (McLean Beach to Willoughby’s Beach), which includes the Island Sanctuary.
