Dog Friendly Caravan Park Stanthorpe - Stanthorpe Holiday Park

Exploring the stunning Granite Belt region with your furry friend is an adventure like no other. At Stanthorpe Holiday Park, we understand that your pets are part of the family, and we strive to make your stay as enjoyable for them as it is for you. To help you make the most of your trip, here’s a guide to the best pet-friendly activities and spots in Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt.

1. Great Walks

While pets aren’t allowed in Girraween National Park itself, you can explore the surrounding areas and enjoy the beautiful landscapes with your dog. The park’s outskirts offer scenic walking trails that are perfect for a leisurely stroll with your four-legged friend. Donnelly’s Castle and Sentimental Rocks offer great alternative walking tracks to the national park, where you can enjoy the classic granite formations, in a dog friendly environment. Remember to bring water, pick up after your pooch and keep your pet on a leash to ensure their safety.

2. Quart Pot Creek

Quart Pot Creek meanders through the heart of Stanthorpe and is a wonderful spot for a walk with your dog. The creek is surrounded by parklands and walking paths, offering plenty of space for your pet to explore and play. There are picnic areas where you can relax and enjoy the serene environment while your pet sniffs around.

3. Stanthorpe Showgrounds Markets

Held on the first Sunday of every month, the Stanthorpe Showgrounds Markets are a pet-friendly event where you can browse local produce, crafts, and more. It’s a great way to experience the local culture and enjoy a day out with your dog. Just make sure your pet is comfortable with crowds and other animals.
