Dogs at Island Hills Station

 

Dogs are welcome on the track under strict criteria and controls.

 

Notes For Dog Walkers

Dogs are welcome on the track, but they must meet the criteria and controls listed below so as not to upset other track and hut users, or disturb farm animals and wild life. There are pest control traps and bait stations along the walking track and at the huts, these are all dog safe.

If you wish to bring a dog please read our requirements below and inform the track ranger via e-mail shaun@islandhillsstation.com at least one week prior to arrival at the property.

Dog kennel and run Island Hills Station

Dog Motels

Secure and cosy kennels and runs

There are secure and cozy dog motels (kennels and runs) set up next to each accommodation facility. We can transport in your dogs own bedding if you wish. Some people prefer to take a tent to sleep next to their dog, we are happy to transport these in. It is expected that you will ensure that your dog is not whining or barking at night.

Dogs are not allowed inside the huts. We have had this rule broken by some dog owners and received complaints from other users. We can’t afford to have YOUR dog spoiling someone else’s experience, if it happens again we will unfortunately need to ban dogs from the walking track.
