Pet-friendly information

Pet-friendly camping sites in Western Australia and South Australia

Here at Summerstar, we get the bond people have with their furry friends – they're part of the family, after all! 

We know it can be hard finding friends or shelters to care for your best mate while you’re away on holiday – not to mention you don’t want them missing out on the fun family vacation.

Read on for more info about where we do and don't allow pets at our family-friendly caravan, holiday and tourist parks.

Pet-friendly options

Summerstar allows most pets in all powered and unpowered camping sites across all caravan park locations in Western Australia (with the exception of Eighty Mile Beach Caravan Park) and in Ceduna in South Australia.

The reason for this? Eighty Mile Beach is a Marine Park and is land and waters managed under the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984. The beach is brimming with diverse marine life and delicate ecosystems (such as Flatback turtles that nest on the beach, and thousands of migratory birds), and therefore no pets (including dogs) are permitted. We're passionate about preserving this natural wonder and ensuring its sustainability for generations to come and we appreciate the understanding from our guests in helping us protect this unique environment.

We also offer pet-friendly accommodation in South Australia with our cottages at Ceduna Shelly Beach Caravan Park

To help everyone have a tip-top time, we've got some strict guidelines to keep all our visitors safe - favourite family pets included! If you’re ever unsure if your pet would be suitable to join you on your family holiday to one of Summerstar’s stunning waterfront caravan parks, please get in touch with the park and we can chat it out. 

P.s. Don't forget to let us know about any animals that are joining you on your holiday when you place your booking - the notes section before adding your stay to your cart is the perfect place for this!
