Multi award-winning accommodation and caravan/camping sites which have been specifically designed for the peace-of-mind of those holidaying with their four-legged best friend. Best Friend Holiday Retreat is set on 10 acres of parkland gardens in the rainforest of Tarra Valley, near Yarram and is located two-and-a-half hours east of Melbourne adjacent to a waterfall and natural rock pool suitable for swimming and fishing. Located 3km from the magnificent Tarra Bulga National Park, and yet is only 25 minutes from the beach.

The Park boasts its own resident koalas and wildlife abounds. There is a unique "open aviary" where the spectacular birds of the rainforest provide a colourful display not to be missed. (Daily feeding at 9 am.)

The self-contained cabins and drive-through caravan sites are securely fenced. There are six individual off-leash areas within the park, securely fenced with double-gate entrances. There is a dog playground and a separate area containing a giant dog ball for play. A hydrobath hut is available to all guests free-of-charge.

If you wish to visit the wonderful Tarra Bulga National Park, your dog can relax in the luxury day use kennels with their own TV and DVD player (charges apply).

The individually fenced cabins are one and two bedrooms (your choice from budget to deluxe) and each has a garden or forest outlook from a spacious BBQ decking. The deluxe cabins are individually themed (Snoopy's Snoozer, Pluto's Palace and Scooby Doo's Shack) and are air-conditioned. All cabins have free-to-air satellite TV.

And "YES" dogs are most welcome inside accommodation, subject only to the common courtesy 'Park Rules' (available on the website). In fact our Rules state that dogs MUST sleep inside !

Currently, there is no mobile reception available in Tarra Valley. There is a public telephone outside reception. Free WiFi internet access is available in and around the reception building.
