While you are on holiday does your beloved pet stay at home and someone comes to feed them?  Maybe take them to the park for a walk, if they are lucky? Why?  You never need to leave your precious four-legged family members at home again.   They are not just a pet, they are your fur kids and they are more than welcome to stay with you and relax at Chilverton Cottages, Restaurant & Day Spa.  This incredible pet-friendly accommodation is situated on the southern end of Atherton Tablelands in beautiful Far North Queensland, Australia.

Australia has some of the most amazing destinations for a great holiday and the Atherton Tablelands is the perfect place to travel to. Pawfect because you can bring your dog, cat or even your bird, it is hard to find a pet that we will turn away.

This little piece of paradise that is called Chilverton Cottages, Restaurant & Day Spa will totally amaze you with its park-like grounds.   The magnificent gum trees that are scattered around this property do not take away from the beauty of the river that runs around the boundary.  There are many adventures for you and your pet to get up to,  the swing bridge to conquer, walking tracks, secluded little spots to sit and relax to explore and a park to run and romp in. View our Pet-friendly information here. 

If you are keen to see the elusive platypus, head down to the river in the early morning, late afternoon or sometimes in the middle of the day (they are not remote controlled,  they are real animals and do not listen to the times I give)  Relax on the grassy beach situated on the river bank and watch for platypus as well as the water wildlife that is about.  Included in this will be of course the platypus, water dragons, and turtles to name a few.  Don’t forget to bring your beloved dog or other pet that you have with you, they will love it as well.  As the night gets darker it is time for a bit of spotlighting.   Put the furkid on a leash and head out with the torch.  With the chance to spot many varieties of possums, paddy melons, tree kangaroos, owls along with other night-life that we have in Australia.  Or for the more relaxed just laze in the spa bath with your pet close by.

If you are wishing to visit the local national park, lake or dam we offer pet sitting on site. (charges may apply depending on the amount of time)

Annual holiday, special occasions, romantic getaways, just a quick trip up the hill for a night away, we cater for all you and your pet need to have a great holidayDo not head overseas for your holiday stay at home and see what Australia has to offer
