K9 RIVER RETREAT

K9 River Retreat is a luxury (kennel free) homestay-style, dog boarding facility set on 100 acres with Barron River frontage. We are situated in beautiful Kuranda, the naturally air-conditioned suburb of Cairns, Far North Queensland.

Our canine guests sleep in spacious, friendly (indoor) bedrooms, with comfortable beds and lounge suites. They have all day access to five different, large, safe and secure, enclosed outdoor areas with sand-pits, plunge pools and agility courses (2,500sq metres).

Pooches are taken for a daily walk on secure leads along our specially created walking tracks, before playing on our sandy beach and going for a refreshing dip or swim in the river.

We pride ourselves on boarding a maximum of 18 dogs, using environmentally friendly products. We feed premium holistic food, comprised of Australian made ‘Blackhawk’ dry food and specially cooked organic chicken mince and rice. Follow your dog’s holiday fun on our Facebook page.
