Pet Friendly Cottages
Kennels and chains are available as required and a facility is available (on request prior to arrival) to fit gates at the cottages to close off the deck
Pets are allowed inside the cottages as long as they are well behaved, have their own beds/bedding and are kept off the furniture. Guest have to accept responsibility for any damage caused by their pets. Although the council require dogs to be on a leash when on the beach between 8am and 7pm, the beach is 10km long and usually quite deserted so leashes are not normally necessary
It is strongly recommend that some form of tick protection be used on animals brought onto the retreat.
Guests who own horses are very welcome to bring them to the retreat. Several paddocks are available to accommodate them with one small paddock near Banksia cottage for those guests who want to be closer to their horse/s.
As no pet food is available on the retreat, all provisions must be brought with you to the retreat.
Facilities are available for horses including paddocks, yards, stables, stalls, wash bay and round yard.
The long white sandy beach is perfect for horse riding. A short 3km ride to the north is the access to Manning Point village or another kilometre takes you to the mouth of the Manning River opposite Harrington where you have a choice of riding another kilometre or so along the edge of the river back to the village or returning along the ocean beach.
A short drive from the retreat are several forests and National Parks where forest trails can be enjoyed.
Please Note: NO RESPONSIBILTY WHATSOEVER IS ACCEPTED BY MELALEUCA RETREAT FOR THE WELL BEING, SAFETY OR SECURITY OF ANY ANIMAL BROUGHT ONTO THE RETREAT.
