NSW- Wootton, near Bulahdelah.

Ballantine Estate

http://www.ballantineestate.com.au/index.html

We stayed in the Dairy, really lovely - dogs allowed inside - big verandah, lovely views, very quite, hosts very welcoming, BUT no separate fenced yard/gates on the verandah - and stock around, so dogs on lead outside. We took a tie out/tether lead thing so we could bring the fur baby outside so hang out on the grass patch next to us and chew his bone while hang out in the spa on the verandah

Going to stay in Coffs in Feb with Leo too, so will post once we have returned and can rate it :p

Narrawallee Beach House near Ulladulla NSW South Coast, You only need to bring your clothes & food. Everything is supplied. Dogs allowed inside the only stipulation was you bring covers for the furniture if the dogs are so inclined. The only thing was the yard was said to be secure but I wouldn't leave my dogs alone in the yard if going out as 2 were wire & only a little over waist height.

There's even toys, books, videos, colour pencils & games for the kids.

Ok, I'm going to be cheeky and put in a plug for my holiday cottage at Mystery Bay NSW. It is situated between Narooma and Tilba on the far South Coast,

I went to Mystery Bay for a holiday two years ago and the entire area is so spectacular that I bought a place and plan to move there as soon as I possibly can. In the meantime I want to share it with other dog lovers.

There is a huge, fully fenced back yard. Dogs are allowed inside and all I ask is that you bring some coverings for the furniture and beds if your dogs are like mine and like to claim all the lounges. :thumbsup:

You have your own beach four hundred metres away down a lovely bush track. It is off leash before 10 am and after 4 pm during peak season and off leash .24 hours for the rest of the year. A 10 minute drive to Narooma will bring you to more spectacular beaches which are off leash areas all year round. At this time of year humpbacks come right into Mystery Bay to play so bring binnoculars if you want to see them up close and personal

Here is a picture of Paddy at Mystery Bay Beach taken a couple of days ago

It is on page 3 of Holiday Accomodation. 'Stormhaven' 12 Poole Pde Mystery Bay

ETA - the advertisement is incorrect as the the main bedroom has a queensized bed, second bedroom has a double bed, and the third bedroom has a doule plus two single beds. It will accomodate 8 although at a pinch we can fit another on the sofa bed in the loungeroom.

ETA SORRY GUYS BUT STORM HAVEN IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AS ACCOMODATION. ............ because it is so gorgeous I have chucked in my job and am moving there in January :D

So please delete this post, Ravs - ta

Victoria - in the Otways

Countrywide Cottages - we stayed there earlier this year. There are 4 cabins, and although not fenced, they are spaced well apart. The verandah of each cottage has lockable gates. Dogs are allowed inside and the owner supplies a couch cover. Very dog friendly and I think you can also take horses. Nice friendly owner.

QUEENSLAND

'Tropic Tide' Toogoom, Qld.

Quiet dog friendly town about 20 minutes from hervey bay. House backs right onto water and every day when the tide goes out your dog gets to run around and play on the flats with hardly anybody in sight. Beautiful water, people, fishing. Just got back yesterday and will be going back for sure. All tiled or lino except bedrooms. Fully fenced backyard.

5/5 in my book.

I stayed at 'Baffle Bob's Caravan Park' a few years back, it was excellent. It is just North of Bundaberg..take the road to Rules Beach.

Cabins, and caravans for staying in as well as tent and van sites. There is a boat ramp onto Baffle Creek so you can go fishin'.

Nola & Bob were great hosts!

My OH and i took our four to Camp Tailwaggers last year for a short stay, and we loved it too! Our big dogs had a swim in the dam and then did the walking trails. It was pretty quiet when we went so we practically had the place to ourselves:)

In a weeks time we'll be going to The Endless Summer selfcontained holiday house at Culburra beach. Hopefully we'll get really hot weather. Has anyone heard of it or been there themsleves?

Pether Cottage at Talbingo! We spent the weekend there with our great dane, greyhound and my parents with their Alaskan malamute.

The fences weren't very high, but our dogs aren't fence jumpers, so no problems.

The house was well equipped, you can hire linen or take your own. Games and videos/DVDs were available, and everything you could think of in the kitchen. Sleeps 8 comfortably, and probably 10 would be okay as well.

The dogs loved the walks, and there's lakes nearby for fishing and swimming. Close to Mt Selwyn as well, although I pobably wouldn't leave the dogs on their own. Little country town with a club, restaurant and general store.

We've been going camping in the area forever, so was nice to stay in a house this time.

Dammit, Kaz, I was just getting excited about the prospect of staying at your place :thumbsup: Let us know if you have an extended holiday away from home and need a house-sitter :laugh:

I've plugged these folks before ... Giba Gunyah Country Cottages in Bemboka, near Bega on the NSW South Coast. An easy drive to Tathra Beach from there.

We've been going there every year since 2005 for our wedding anniversary. You can see Jack relaxing by the fire on our first visit here :laugh:

There are two self-contained cottages -- the artist-built stone cottage and the pine cottage -- with fenced yards, wood fires, lots of trees for shade, lots of buried bones for happy dogs, the Bemboka River at the end of the driveway for a dip ... and a whole lotta peace and quiet :happydance2:

I can't recommend the hosts Ros and John highly enough. Lovely people, with a lovely, friendly chocolate labrador named Charlie :heart:

There are cows, dams, (contained) chooks, fire trails and all sorts of interesting smells for the dogs. Cats can stay, too.

Dogs are allowed in the cottages, but not on the furniture or in the bedroom areas. We always crate Jack in front of the fire when we stay.

Hi guys - was wondering if anyone could offer any suggestions.

We are travelling to Tuross Head in NSW in early Feb, and need to find a single nights accommodation onroute on Thursday the 4th Feb. I have spent I don't know how many hours trolling through the accommodation listings, but am struggling to find something suitable.

We are hoping to stop over in the Canberra region on the Thursday night, and we will have 5 dogs with us - plus a dog trailer, so not expecting the dogs to be inside the accommodation. I have found one potential B&B, but I would really prefer something more self contained, not closely shared with other guests who may not like dogs. Caravan parks would be fine too.

My sticking point seems to be the one night - most SC places are minimum of 2 nights (or more).

Anything between Canberra and Tuross Head would be fine as well - I've done lots of searching around Batemans Bay, etc, but keep coming undone at the minimum stay.

Starting to tear my hair out now, so thought I had better ask around on here before I do anything drastic :)

Yes we have just used Stayz as well two weeks ago. Staying here at Byron Bay with our four legged companion. Accommodation was a little rudimentary though in a wonderful position and the adjacent beach (Tallow) is both beautiful and one on which you can exercise your dog off leash. Picture attached of a happy whippet on the beach.
