5 Pet-Friendly Winter Getaways from Sydney

Five pet-friendly destinations for a winter week-end away from Sydney

As Australians start resuming their normal life, many of us are planning our next holiday after being kept at home for so long.

Due to the lengthy lockdown period, many local businesses were heavily impacted by the lack of tourism that came through their towns. While restrictions on international travel remain, consider travelling interstate to support local businesses on your next getaway.

Given that our pets are now accustomed to the luxurious lifestyle of always having us home, it's more important than ever we include them in the trip and prevent any guilt we might feel by leaving them behind.

So why not search for pet-friendly accommodation for your next vacation? Fortunately, pet insurance provider Petsy has rounded up their Top 5 of destinations that allow pets, all within a short drive from Sydney.


#1. Waymount Farm Luxury Escape

Waymount Farm is a stunning self contained luxury country retreat in the heart of Shoalhaven on the South Coast of NSW. This farm house boasts a gorgeous pool, outdoor heated spa and sauna surrounded by views of nearby mountains and tiny farm animals. 


Spend your days exploring the pristine Shoalhaven beaches, nearby pet-friendly walking tracks or adventure park, then treat yourself to some local cuisine in one of the town’s gorgeous cafes and restaurants to support local business.
