We understand that for many of our guests, pets are part of the family and can’t simply be left behind. At Friday Creek Retreat we want you to enjoy your holiday with all those you hold most dear. So dogs, cats and most other furry friends are welcome here.
If you are bringing a pet you must advise us in advance. All pets must be pre-approved by Management prior to arrival.
We offer nine distinctive, well-equipped and comfortable cottages. If your pets live inside with you at home, they are welcome to stay inside the cottage too, but not permitted on any furniture. Please bring your own pet food, bedding, bowls and a lead.
You are also welcome to roam our 100-acre property with your pets. As we share the property with a wealth of native wildlife, we do ask you to control your animal and keep them on leash when on the grounds. Pets are never to be left unattended at any time, either in the cottage or anywhere else on the property. We can recommend nearby pet-sitting facilities to enable you to leave your pets in a safe comfortable environment whilst you explore some tourist options.
If you and your pet want to explore further afield there are plenty of pet-friendly reserves and beaches close to Coffs Harbour. The nearest off leash beach is North Wall Beach in Marina Drive, opposite the Coffs Harbour Yacht Club.
Also, a dog-friendly favourite that you won’t want to miss is, Maggie’s Dog Cafe and Salon at Moonee Marketplace. Maggie’s is the only indoor dog cafe in the country. Its a lovely place to sit back and relax with a cup of coffee and something to eat (vegetarian options too) for you and your dog. Your best furry friend will feel right at home. With a dog menu full of delicious drinks and treats, lead-free play area, in-house dog grooming salon and shop with essentials and more. Maggie’s also offers doggy daycare, making it a convenient place to drop off your dog in a comfortable air conditioned space, while you are off seeing all the sights Coffs Harbour has to offer.
