Dog-friendly accommodation trial

We understand that dogs are a big part of the family and we think your furry friend deserves a holiday as much as you do!

In response to feedback, we have activated a three-year trial of dog-friendly accommodation options. By running a trial period restricted to the quieter times of the year and in a dedicated dog-friendly section of the park, we can explore the feasibility of welcoming dogs more broadly in the future, while continuing to comfortably accommodate people who choose to holiday with no dogs.

In 2024, dogs are welcome from 1 May 2024 – 15 September 2024 at Portarlington.

To make a booking for dog-friendly accommodation, please contact our reception team via or 5254 4000 (select option 1).
