K9 River Retreat is a luxury (kennel free) boutique, homestay-styled 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 human grade mattresses 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).

We pride ourselves on boarding a maximum of 15 dogs, using environmentally friendly products. We feed premium food comprised of Australian made ‘Meals For Mutts’ dry food and a special blend of homemade evolutionary complete and balanced diet comprised of  human grade meat, vegetables, fruits and organ meats.

We are on site 24 hours a day and our caretakers residence is attached to the ‘Dog House’, ensuring your beloved pet is cared for day and night. Follow your dog’s holiday fun on our Facebook page.
