Best Friend Holiday Retreat is tourist holiday accommodation that is totally dog friendly.

Best Friend Holiday Retreat is on 10 acres in Tarra Valley, near Yarram and is located less than three hours east of Melbourne and adjacent to a lovely waterfall with a rock pool swimming hole. Located three kilometres from the magnificent Tarra-Bulga National Park, and yet is only 30 minutes from Woodside beach.

You are most welcome with your dog. All cabins are individually fenced and dogs must sleep inside at night.

You have your choice of budget cabins to their individually themed deluxe cabins (Pluto's Palace, Snoopy's Snoozer and Scooby-Doo's Shack). Also available are fenced caravan and camping sites so, once you park your van or pitch your tent you have an area around you where your dog can run free safely.

To make sure your dog gets lots of exercise, there are six huge securely fenced off-leash areas including a doggie playground. If the owners agree, the dogs may mix with other dogs, however as per their dog rules (available on their website) you do not enter if someone else is using that particular area unless you ask first. They understand that not all dogs get on with other dogs.

There is a great off-lead beach at Woodside beach which is a off-lead beach all year round. To wash off the sand, there is a dog hydro-bath available at no additional charge.

The nearby wonderful Tarra Bulga National Park is a must to visit but as no dogs are allowed, luxury day use kennels are available, each with their own lounge, television and DVD player (charges apply).

Tarra Valley is a beautiful valley, however, no mobile reception is available. There is a public phone available near reception and free wireless internet access on the property.
