Dog-friendly Holidays at Reflections Holiday Parks NSW

Now that the world has opened up again but with international travel costs 'off the charts', many Aussie families will be looking to spend their next holiday locally – and half of all dog owners want to take their pooch on holidays with them!

Australia has one of the highest pet ownership rates in the world, with 69% owning at least one pet, equating to more than 28 million pets. Of the 48% of households that own a dog, half of those are keen to include their pooch in their family holidays.

Reflections Holiday Parks, located across NSW, understands the obsession that Australians have with their furry friends, which is why they offer 28 dog-friendly holiday destinations across NSW, where both two- and four-legged family members can all enjoy the delights of a holiday.

Here are 8 popular Reflections Holiday Parks options:

1. Shaws Bay Holiday Park (Ballina)

Shaws Bay Holiday Park, situated in East Ballina just two hours south of Brisbane, is a dog-friendly caravan and camping park positioned on the tranquil banks of Shaw Bay, where all caravan and camp sites, and selected cabins, are dog-friendly all year round. 

A 5-minute drive takes you to the dog-friendly Spit, a popular off-leash dog beach for your pooch to really let loose and get out all the zoomies. Shaws Bay Holiday Park is also a great base to explore nearby the picturesque Ballina and Byron Bay.

2. Moonee Beach Holiday Park (Coffs Harbour)

Moonee Beach Holiday Park is located just 10 minutes from Coffs Harbour, moments from the fishing and surfing haven of Moonee Beach. Boasting plenty of large dog-friendly sites for caravans and camping – both powered and unpowered – and a range of modern tiny homes and cabins, Moonee Beach Holiday Park is the perfect spot to experience the tranquillity of nature with your best (furry) friend. 

With a deluxe dog wash with hot and cold water on site, your pooch can enjoy a pamper session to relax for the evening, while human companions can make the most of the modern amenities including a large camp kitchen, fire pits, tennis court and ping pong tables.

3. Corindi Beach Holiday Park (Coffs Harbour)

30 minutes north of Coffs Harbour, Corindi Beach Holiday Park is the perfect destination for your next coastal getaway with your pooch. Situated on the stunning Corindi Headland, this holiday park is dog-friendly all year round, with all caravan and camping sites, and selected cabins, welcoming your precious pup. 

Corindi Beach Holiday Park also offers a skate park and basketball court, with organised fun for kids during the school holidays. A perfect location to explore the stunning Coffs Coast, with its world-famous attractions and endless natural delights.

Red Rock is the northernmost village on the Coffs Coast and is nestled between the beach and the pristine waters of the Corindi River

4. Red Rock Holiday Park (Coffs Harbour)

Also on the Coffs Coast is Red Rock Holiday Park, located in the quaint town of Red Rock just 30 minutes from Coffs Harbour. This park has a range of powered and unpowered sites for humans and their furry friends to enjoy. Dog owners love the 3km board walk around the river and the salty spray of surf nearby at Red Rock Beach (dogs allowed on leash). 

For off-leash fun, playful pups can run around Corindi Beach to the south of Ocean Street. A warm doggy bath is on hand at the end of each day for your sandy hound, and there’s a takeaway restaurant and convenience store on site (which also sells dog food) in case you forget any essentials.

5. Ferry Reserve Holiday Park (Byron Bay)

Nestled on the edge of Brunswick Heads, just 15 north of Byron Bay, Ferry Reserve Holiday Park features direct river access and a boat ramp, making it ideal for boaters, paddlers and fisherfolk to explore the Brunswick River. 

The flat and spacious caravan and camping sites, plus selected deluxe cabins and tiny homes are dog-friendly all year round, and there’s a fantastic off-leash exercise area close by at Mains Beach, making Ferry Reserve Holiday Park a doggie’s dream destination.

6. Lennox Head Holiday Park (Lennox Head)

Located on the north coast of NSW, just a short walk from off-leash Seven Mile Beach, Lennox Head Holiday Park is a pup’s paradise. All of the caravan and camping sites are dog-friendly, with 10 dog-friendly cabins – four of which are deluxe accommodation offerings for a more luxurious travel experience with your pampered pooch. 

The park’s own enclosed, off-leash dog area has agility equipment and is the ideal location for dog-loving travellers to connect. The park’s dog wash is also a must for those returning from a beach romp!

7. Eden Holiday Park (Eden)

Heading in the opposite direction down the south coast of NSW is Eden Holiday Park on the stunning Sapphire Coast, where dogs are welcomed on all sites, as well as in five dog-friendly family cabins (sleeps 6). 

Kick back with your pup after a day of exploring the local areas, including the off-leash dog beach, Aslings Beach, directly opposite the park. A fully equipped camp kitchen means you can travel light, and if you visit between September and November, you’ll find yourself in one of Australia’s best whale-watching hotspots.

8. Lake Keepit Holiday Park (Tamworth)

Lake Keepit Holiday Park can be found in the beautiful New England region of NSW, an easy drive from both Gunnedah and Tamworth. A water park, skate park and BMX track will make this a huge hit with the two-legged kids, while the four-legged variety can enjoy a splash in Keepit Dam – which is more than twice the size of Sydney Harbour! 

Dog-friendly all year round, Lake Keepit Holiday Park features a large selection of powered and unpowered caravan and camping sites, as well as a limited number of dog-friendly cabins. Other amenities to suit the whole family include the camp kitchen, BBQs, go karts, tennis court and volleyball court.
