Pet friendly weekend getaways Tasmania

When writing about pet friendly weekend getaways Tasmania, I need to stress that we are not in the tourism and travel industry, so things like booking fees, seasonal rates etc. are best left to those in the know.

Whether that be a travel agency, direct with the property, or online booking yourself through the various booking apps and platforms such as Webjet, Hotel Club, Trivago, Last minute, etc.

With this resource we simply want to highlight some places that could be somewhere different, and somewhere that is fun for people and their dogs.

There are many options out there and we are proud to say that ‘Pet friendly accommodation’ offers so many of them. We have included accommodation that is free, right through to 5-star luxury hotels with a balance of locations too.

Everybody has different wants and needs and we hope we have satisfied as many as possible here.
