No need to leave Fido at home next time you plan an outdoor, overnight adventure in Southern Queensland Country.

Whether you prefer to pitch a tent, put down the campervan legs, or check-in to a campsite cabin, our region has you covered with these pet-friendly campsites for a guaranteed paw-some time.

If land size is your deciding factor when choosing where to put down the caravan legs, head to Barambah Bush Caravan and Camping Park.

Set on 200 acres with 60 acres of parkland and 140 acres of natural bushland, expect to share your camping experience with native birdlife and wildlife who call this property home.

While it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax, if you prefer to keep active on your camping trip try your luck at the onsite nine-hole bush golf course.

While the property provides cabin accommodation too, you’ll need to book a caravan or camping site if you’re bringing your pup with you.
