It hurts to leave your pet behind while you go out on a fun trip. It’s even harder when the trip is to a glamping site where you’re surrounded by nature all around — an atmosphere you know your pet is just going to love.
You end up missing them so much, that you may not even enjoy the trip half as much as you should.
This is one of the major reasons why you should always take your pets glamping. Here’s a guide to some of the best pet-friendly glamping in Australia.
Donnybrook Eco Retreat

South Coast Retreat – Glamping Safari Treat
South coast retreat provides a full-on African safari-style glamping, thanks to its safari-themed tents and eco-friendly environment. The exterior is also a sight to behold. It manages to strike the perfect balance between a beautiful, well-maintained space and an area with enough trees and plantations.
While the exterior is an amazing part of the whole experience, the interior is perhaps where the major thrill lies. The rooms offer a remarkable contrast to the vegetation outside.
A close analogy would be to consider it as having a five-star hotel right in the middle of lush vegetation. And finally, of course, both the interiors and exteriors are pet-friendly. Be sure to bring along accessories such as dog blankets, dog sleeping bags or even glow-in-the-dark dog collars!
The major purpose of glamping is to add an extra dose of comfort and upgrade to regular camping. Different glamping locations do this in different ways. With Turon Gates, this uniqueness comes in the form of a 6000-acre space of lush vegetation, trout stream, remarkable tents, log cabins, campsites, and breathtaking mountain views.
Arguably the best part of glamping in Turon Gates is the combination of sensory appeal and full-on camping experience.
The environment comes alive with the chattering of birds, wildlife, and other animals. Speaking of animals, Turon Gates is also as pet-friendly as they come, with provisions made for you and your pets to ensure the utmost comfort.

Glamping is fun with pets
There’s nothing like soaking in the beauty of nature with your pet by your side. You get to take walks with them, watch them roam about, and go wild in pure ecstasy. This is the fun side of glamping you don’t get without a pet.
Going glamping with your pet is one of the most profound ways of building a lasting memory that is sure to last forever. It adds an added air of significance to the event that you’re probably not going to get, or at least not as much without them.
