Terms and conditions for travelling with pets at Standown

These conditions are the minimum standards and requirements for our guests travelling with dogs or any pet.

  • The dog owner must disclose if they are travelling with a dog upon booking and upon arrival. Special conditions may apply, including date restrictions.
  • Upon arrival at the park, the dog’s acceptance will be at the Manager’s discretion.
  • Dogs must be supervised at all times and never left unattended for extended periods of time, including inside a tent, van, or other accommodation.
  • Dogs must be on a lead at all times while not in a van or tent: there are no exceptions. A lead must be no more than 1.5metres in length.  No dog ‘rope runs’ are to be operated by dog owners.  Small fences around your annex are permitted.  There are acres of grass land for you to let your dog off for a run or take a leisurely walk through the forestry.
  • For health and safety reasons, dogs are not allowed in any common areas of the park, including camp kitchen, amenities, reception, or any public area where food/drink is present.  Assistance dogs an exception.
  • Tying your dog or any pet to any tree or post in the Park is not permitted.
  • Dog owners are 100% responsible for picking up and disposing of their dog’s waste and disposing of it in your rubbish bin.
  • For health and safety reasons, dogs must not be washed or cleaned anywhere within the park/laundry (unless in a mobile dog wash service). Additionally, any dog-related accessories such as dog blankets are not to be washed or cleaned within the park.
  • Dog owners are personally responsible and will be held to be so, for any and all personal injuries and/or property damage or losses in relation to any actions caused by or because of their dog.
  • Dogs can be walked off lead around the park but away from camp sites and public areas, including exiting the park into the neighbouring forestry.
  • The dog owner must agree that the Park Manager reserves the right to evict any guests whose dog is deemed noisy, disruptive, and aggressive or the subject of a complaint/s from other guests. It is the dog owner’s sole responsibility to control and manage their dog. If in the view of park management this has not happened to an acceptable level, the owner and the dog may be asked to leave the park immediately.
