We were lucky enough to stay in one of the Figtree Cabins, and it did not disappoint.
Not only was there an outdoor fireplace to keep us warm after sunset, but the cabin was also equipped with a mighty strong heater/aircon to keep us all nice and toasty through the night.
Now, imagine waking up and seeing the sunrise from your window and then being able to walk towards the Clarence River to watch it reflect off the water. Not to mention the kangaroos and wallabies silhouetted in the marshlands beside us.
I cannot emphasise enough how peaceful early mornings are at this park.
To sum it up, we will definitely be returning to BIG4 Saltwater @ Yamba. The staff and location were amazing, the fellow travellers were friendly and respectful, and most importantly this park was actually dog friendly.
We never felt out of place walking around with our pup. There was even a dog wash if they get dirty! They have thought of it all.
Also, in a very nice touch, the dogs received some Schmackos treats from reception when we were checking in.
Many times, when I read that accommodation has a dog park, I don’t think much of it because it is usually just a small, fenced-in patch of grass. However, this park delivered!
This was the nicest agility-style dog wonderland I’ve seen in a long time. Weave poles, tunnels, ramps...you name it, they’ve got it.
I think most dog owners can relate to finding 'dog-friendly accommodation' that really isn't dog friendly at all.
So, the fact that you are allowed your dogs inside the cabins, they are allowed to walk around nearly the entire park, and there is a designated off-leash dog zone just makes me really happy for all my fellow dog owners.
We take Sedona absolutely everywhere, but as for big trips I’d say every week or so we do a bit of a getaway.
Our last big adventure was driving from the Gold Coast all the way down to Warrnambool in Victoria, so just a casual 20hr drive!
Here are three that have saved us...
Her doggo bed, her favourite leash and collar set, her dinner, and a collapsible bowl for the thirsty gal. And my camera because she’s the most photogenic girl I know.
