Lakes Coast Visitor Guide

LAKES COAST VISITOR GUIDE | PAGE 25 TARRA TERRITORY One of the fully-fenced cabins, nestled in a leafy setting at Best Friend Holiday Park. Because dogs love holidays too! Winner of 23 tourism awards, 11 of which have been for best in Australia, Best Friend Holiday Retreat is pretty much as pet friendly as accommodation can be, designed and purpose-built especially for people holidaying with their four-legged best friends. A short drive from the rainforests of Tarra Bulga National Park, the retreat is set in lush green surrounds, adjacent to a year-round waterfall and a natural rock-formed swimming pool, with the 90 Mile Beach just a 30-minute drive away. Stay options include securely-fenced, drivethrough camping or caravan sites, and budget or deluxe pet-friendly fenced cabins. Unlike most accommodation providers, when you stay in a cabin at Best Friend Holiday Retreat, your dog can even sleep inside with you! The Retreat has six expansive off-leash areas, securely fenced with underground wire netting and double gate entrances, as well as plenty of tethering places and drinking spots. Dog-friendly play and dog-agility equipment – as well as a unique, giant dog ball run – will keep their minds and bodies active. There's also an onsite hydrobath hut to pamper your dog, and luxury day kennels to care for your dog while you head out to explore the National Park. There are two separate covered barbecues and camp kitchen areas, with the larger kitchen area seating up to 40 people and boasting a cook-top, microwave, refrigerator, hot and cold water (and, of course, your best friend can dine with you). By night, you and your family can toast marshmallows or chestnuts (in season) on your own private campfire, watched by the friendly resident koalas.
