Maryborough is steeped in history with its original wharf now considered a ‘must do’ Queensland experience, being the birthplace of the creator of Mary Poppins and the famous weekly markets that see the city centre transform into a bustling outdoor marketplace.

Often frequented by owners of dogs who compete in Obedience, Performance and Grooming competitions in the region, the Wallace Caravan Park knows how important your pets are and try to make their experience (and yours) as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.  

With a range of pet friendly accommodation options including a number of pet friendly cabins as well as a large off-leash area for your dog to exercise and play, pets are considered as the new normal and you won’t be short of dog-friendly activities in town.  

Golden Beaches at BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park

The Gold Coast is known for its dog friendly beaches including The Spit, Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creek so taking your pet on a Gold Coast holiday makes sense.

BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park is the ultimate holiday stay for you and your pet.

All caravan and camping sites are dog friendly as well as a number of dog friendly cabins and there’s even a dedicated off leash park with plenty of room for puppy socialising and exercise as well as its very own dog wash on site, meaning your pup can be pampered too.  

Remember, when holidaying with your pets that they need to be fully vaccinated, you must clean up after them and, unless otherwise signed, they should be kept on a leash at all times. Definitely worth it for the pleasure of a holiday the whole family including your fur baby, we say!
