BIG4 Atherton Woodlands Tourist Park
Our Park is a great place to use as your base while you explore all that this wonderful region has to offer.

Dog Friendly

Dogs With Permission – Sites Only – Dogs 10 Kilos & Under

We are very proud to be able to offer pet friendly holiday accommodation, however to ensure all of our guests have an enjoyable stay at BIG4 Atherton Woodlands Tourist Park, we do have some rules which must be adhered to.

On arrival a $20.00 bond will be charged. You will be registered and given a very smart BIG4 identification tag which you must wear on your leash at all times, so we know who you are and that you are allowed to stay with us.

A breach of any of the following rules will mean that the bond is forfeited:

  • We will give your owner a container of "doggy do" bags so please make sure they clean up after you and put the bags in the rubbish bin
  • For health and safety reasons, you will not be allowed in reception, the camp kitchen, amenities and laundry building, pool area, playground or cabana
  • You may be walked on sealed Park roadways on your leash
  • We do have an area where you can play and we will show your owner where that is on the Park Map when you check in
  • You must never be left unattended
  • Barking or aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated at any time and will lead to an instant departure, without refund of site fees
  • Please make sure your owner returns your identification tag and "doggy do bags" before you leave
  • Please note: Dog Owners agree to full responsibility of any personal injury or damage caused by their dog whilst in the confines of the Park and agree to pay for any claims of compensation in relation to the dogs activities

On check-in each dog owner will receive a copy of these rules and will be required to sign them.
