We all love to get away sometimes. But if you are a ‘pet parent’ that can be easier said than done. Making arrangements for your pet while you are away can be challenging and leaving them behind can feel like going away without one of your family members.
Surprisingly, over 60% of Australians own a pet, so it’s fortunate that more and more pet-friendly holiday options are becoming available.
We’ve put together a list of our favourite pet-friendly properties in Daylesford and surrounds that cater for both people and pets. All accommodation can be booked directly through the Dayget website, and if you have any specific requirements a conversation with one of our team members will help you find the perfect place for you and your pet on your next holiday.
