Dog Friendly Accommodation Cairns
Dog Friendly Accommodation Cairns: We have two 5 star luxury family holiday homes in the heart of the rainforest near Cairns called “Wanggulay” and “Wanggulay Too”. Both are dog friendly.
Whether you bring your dog, cat, parrot, rabbit, guinea pig or even your axolotl – they are all welcome at either or both properties! We just love animals.
This luxury dog friendly villa is a stunning Balinese inspired home that sleeps up to 13 people – 8 people in four double / twin bedrooms, plus room for five more on pullout sofa bed / roll aways. PLUS 1,2 or even 3 dogs, puppies or other furry friends. It’s the best of luxury holiday living in the rainforest canopy; 15 minutes drive from Cairns.
2. Wanggulay Too
This dog friendly villa is located right next door to Wanggulay and is slightly larger with five bedrooms. It also sleeps up to 13 – you can book for 8 and increase that to 13 when the in-laws decided to come. PLUS 1,2 or even 3 dogs, puppies or furry friends. You can book one or both properties. We have the flexibility to accommodate any number of people in your group or any pets.
Please just let us know when you book what little furry friend or other pet you’re bringing with you so we can make them welcome.
We provide pet packs for them as a special request. This can include pet litter, pet food and of course, pet treats! (After all – they’re on holiday too!).
How to get your dog or other pet to Cairns
Dog Friendly Accommodation Cairns
Domestic Flights: You will need to make sure you are either travelling with Virgin Australia or Qantas, as Jetstar doesn’t carry dogs. If your dog is a service dog, they will be able to come onto the plane with you. If not, your furry friend will have to go in with the freight (in a special spot of course!) in order to get to our dog friendly accommodation Cairns. Click here to see Virgin Australia rules on taking dogs on planes and Qantas rules on travelling with pets.
Qantas also give you a Australian domestic Pet Pack which is full of useful information for bringing your pet to Wanggulay.
What sort of crate do I need to take my dog in a plane on?
You will need to have a suitable crate as your animal will be in a special area of the aircraft’s freight container. See IATA’s guidelines here on pet-crate requirements for the aeroplane. It seems like a lot of information, but once you have these crates, it’s actually really easy.Save
Here’s an example website where you can buy the appropriate crates for your dog to come on holiday.
Don’t be like Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, who got stuck bringing two little dogs into Australia without going through proper quarantine processes and suffered the consequences of the harsh Australian law. If you are travelling from overseas, we are sorry – but it’s probably best to leave your pets at home. While we’ll happily have them in our dog friendly accommodation Cairns, Australian customs has other ideas!
Dog friendly Accommodation Cairns: Where to leave your dog during the day
In this luxury, Dog Friendly Accommodation Cairns, there’s plenty of activities to do for the whole family. You may have to leave your pets at home for these activities, but they’ll be safe and secure inside our luxury villas.
Your dog can either stay on the amply spaced balcony during the day, or smaller dogs will also be comfortable staying inside this spacious villa on their own. It is perfectly safe.
The owner of the properties is father to a 3 year old blue staffie who is quite comfortable in a balcony environment. If you have a smaller dog, cat, guinea pig or other animal, they may prefer to be inside all day.
We love border collies, labradors, staffies, poodles, ‘oodles’. Whatever your pet, we can accommodate your furry 4 legged friends.
We also provide luxury puppy litter or pet food packs and treats on request. After all, your pet is on holiday too! Please just make a special request when you book.

The Wanggulay Vision: Luxury Dog Friendly Holidays in the Rainforest
When we chose the land where we built Wanggulay and Wanggulay Too, it was pristine rainforest. I could hear children having adventures and their dogs barking. As we strolled under rainforest giants bird songs filled our ears. Some small creatures rustled in the bushes. It dawned on us that we were going to weave our Cairns rainforest retreat among the trees, preserving as much of nature as we could.
When we stop by to greet guests at our family holiday homes near Cairns, nothing has changed except the unique wooden bali-style buildings with every imaginable amenity and luxury. We achieved our Wanggulay vision. We are proud to present the ultimate family holiday where kids can be kids, and the sound of their enthusiasm fills the air.
Testimonials from Families who’ve stayed at Wanggulay or Wanggulay Too
People who’ve stayed in our Pet Friendly Accommodation Cairns have a getaway of a lifetime. Here’s just some of the things they’ve been saying about the experience:
Wanggulay: Space for 13 People + Your Dog: Your Affordable Private Family Rainforest Villa
Dog friendly Accommodation Cairns: Our guests are amazed when they encounter our generous, eight-sleeper family holiday home AND that it can have pets in it too! Port Douglas with its attractions is an hour away along the coastal highway. Palm Cove is a similar distance away. Cairns is literally down the road from where we snuggle up to nature, perched on a dramatic hillside overlooking a spectacular river gorge.
The dog friendly accommodation Cairns is so spectacular you may even love just staying in all day with your dog and soaking up the rainforest atmosphere from the spacious balconies, deck and pool areas.
The day room on the upper level is a symphony of polished hardwood, natural texture, open cathedral ceiling, exotic Balinese furniture, handsome statues and genuine Persian rugs. When you step out onto the balcony you hear birds calling from tall trees almost close enough to touch. You are staying in the ultimate family holiday home in Cairns. What makes it doubly amazing is we treasure families with kids. If you want to bring a well-mannered dog , you are most welcome.
The master bedroom with private facilities and spa bath is a few lazy steps away, and boasts a private bridge to a swimming pool after the kids tuck up tightly in bed at night. There is a second fully equipped double bedroom with bathroom down the passage, and a gourmet kitchen with French doors to the viewing deck.
Kids need own space as they grow older. We built a teenage pad on the lower level with its own lounge and media room opening onto a deck with day sofas. There are two king-size bedrooms where they can romp to their hearts’ content and a shared bathroom. To complete the perfection the guest laundry in is the hallway.
We did not stop there when we created the ultimate family holiday and dog friendly accommodation Cairns. Our eight-sleeper family house that is pet friendly accommodation cairns has an award-winning infinity edge pool with barbeque in the garden. There is a private path to the river with a secluded breakfast deck. This is alfresco living at its very best. This is Wanggulay, your family luxury accommodation in Cairns.
Wanggulay Too – Our Second 5 star Property that is also pet friendly
Space for 13 People + Dogs + other pets, A Luxury Hotel at Half the Price
Dog friendly accommodation Cairns: Wanggulay became so popular we needed to build another 5 star family holiday home in Cairns and we’ve called it ‘Wanggulay Too’. We made it a little larger due to popular demand, and we stayed with balinese-style architecture. The upper level comprises a generous living room with vaulted ceiling and spacious view deck filled with gentle river sounds and twittering birdcalls. A separate gourmet kitchen opens to the vista. The upper level completes with four double bedrooms, one main with own facilities
There is a treasure on the level below especially for parents. We added a piece of heaven with a master bedroom opening to a private deck with direct access to a river platform with antique-style bath for ultimate relaxation beneath the stars. Then we added a living area and a spa bath because mums and dads are special. There is no a better place for family holidays near Cairns, where everybody has the vacation of their dreams.
