Travelling with pets

Set on 14 acres , Armidale Tourist Park features the choice of three Pet Friendly Studio cabins that allow well trained, vaccinated pets inside. Our cabins have ensuites, reverse-cycle air-con, linen provided for the amount of guests booked, and entertaining area & undercover carport. If you wish to book one of our pet friendly cabins, please make sure you select our specific pet friendly cabins online or give us a call and we can help. Not all of our cabins are pet friendly and fines will be incurred for pets being found in our non-pet friendly cabins.

Out And About

Check out the Armidale Regional council’s website to find out where the off-leash dog parks are here. Also check out the Piney’s on Rockvale rd. The perfect place to take your pets and include them in your New England High Country adventure.

Many of the cafes in Armidale will welcome you when travelling with pets, if they are kept outside, our favourite is the Gold Fish Bowl.
