With more and more properties allowing our feline friends to stay, it’s a great time to plan a trip with your kitty. If you’re looking for cat-friendly accommodation Victoria, here are a few favourites.
Since many of us can’t stand the thought of leaving our pampered pets at home when we travel, even for a few days, we have selected hotels, caravan parks and cottage rentals where cats are welcome. Always remember to call the property first as pet-friendly policies change frequently.
Wodonga Caravan Park
This park offers pet-friendly ensuite cabins. It’s an ideal base to explore the many tourist attractions of the Albury-Wodonga region, the Murray River and the High Country. Being located just off the Hume Highway between Sydney and a 3-hour drive from Melbourne make it convenient for a stopover for travelling kitties.
Facilities include a swimming pool, playground, BBQ, dump point, laundrette, kiosk and wireless internet.

Despite being a great experience for both pet and owner, there is always a risk that a cat will get lost if it is allowed to roam without restraint. Be sure your cat is microchipped, and wears a well-fitted harness and ID tag when you travel.
