Heading to Cairns? Here’s Some Things To Do

Cairns is the gateway to the spectacular reef, the Great Barrier Reef as well as island such as Green Island. Pet boarding on the Gold Coast with AAA Pet Resort leaves you with peace of mind that your beloved furry friend is being looked after well while you enjoy your vacation. No trip to Cairns is complete without seeing the Great Barrier Reef, which is the world’s largest coral reef system. You can hop on a cruise to dive or snorkel on the reef and witness spectacular coral and fish. Additionally, don’t miss jumping on a ferry to island hop from Fitzroy Island with its rainforest walking tracks, snorkelling at the beach at Welcome Bay and Nudey Beach and witness the magnificent Great Barrier Reef by sea kayak. Take a day tour to Green Island which is fabulously surrounded by exquisite beaches and crystal clear waters or visit Hinchinbrook Island famous for being Australia’s largest national park island. Here you can explore mangrove forests, sheltered bays and beautiful beaches.

While your dog or cat is enjoying pet boarding on the Gold Coast with AAA Pet Resort, you can enjoy visiting Cairns and some of the trendy cafes lining Grafton and Spence streets. There’s local markets to enjoy from Friday to Sunday with fresh produce including fruit, dairy and seafood. On the topic of markets, you can’t miss the Kuranda Village with its local market selling jewellery, leather items and Aboriginal artwork. Take the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway or the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway and witness mountains, waterfalls and the spectacular Barron Gorge. Just two hours north of Cairns lies the Daintree Rainforest where you can find rainforest meets reef at the exquisite Cape Tribulation. For pet boarding on the Gold Coast, try AAA Pet Resort while you enjoy a vacation in Cairns and surrounds.

Dog  Daycare and Training

Additional to being a leading pet boarding on the Gold Coast resort, we offer doggie day care and training. If you are heading to work or out for the day and don’t want your beloved furry friend stuck at home by themselves, why not bring them on in to AAA Pet Resort? Instead of leaving them with a friend or family member or a pet sitter, there are benefits to leaving them in our safe and capable hands. Your dog’s wellbeing is of utmost priority to our team and so if there are any issues with socialising, please do let us know so we can adjust your dog’s experience accordingly. During their time outside, they will be provided with stimulation and social play, shade and plenty of water. We match the size of your dog with others of similar size for playtime so that there is no intimidation. Ensure that you have your dog’s vaccination up to date and more than five days prior to bringing them on in to our resort. We ultimately want your dog to enjoy their experience with us and we understand that you want a well-behaved dog also. That’s why we deliver exceptional training for your doggie best friend.

Whether you seek private training or group training, we offer a twelve-day or individual program to suit you and your dog’s needs. Our professional team of trainers with Craig A. Murray Dog Training ensures that your dog learns skills like heel, sit and stay, down and stay, come, focus and crate and mat training. Whether you are seeking doggie day care or a training program for your puppy or dog, AAA Pet Resort can provide exceptional service each and every time.

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between Twin Share and Private during pet boarding?

Each of our five room options can be booked as either a Twin Share or a Private, so it’s still the same room, the option just depends on if your dog would like to have the room to them self or if they’d prefer to share that room with a friend. With dogs who do not live together at home, we will only board two dogs together at any one time, except under special circumstances, in which case you would be notified about the situation prior to boarding.

How do you match the dogs for Twin Share?

If you have a dog who thoroughly enjoys the company of another dog, the Twin Share option may be suitable. We match dogs in the Twin Share option according to size and temperament, so if you have a small, calm dog, your dog would be matched with another dog who is small, who would like to integrate but not be too over the top during play. If you have a large, playful dog, your dog would be matched to someone who wouldn’t mind playing the day away with your dog. There are endless combinations of pet traits.

Is there always a dog match available at your pet resort?

There are instances where you may book your dog into a Twin Share room, but we may not have a dog boarding with us during that time who is suitable to share the room with your dog (Eg. Dogs got alone but one was much more playful than the other). If this occurs, we will be in touch with you to let you know that we weren’t able to find a match. When dogs are matched up, sometimes the dates that their booking goes for does not align. Your dog may be here for seven days, and their initial match may only be here for the first three days. The introduction process begins again once their first match has left.

What is the introduction process for the dog boarding?

We are very particular about which dogs share with one another, and our introduction process can take up to 3 or 4 hours. It’s most certainly not something we take lightly as we must ensure that both guests will feel comfortable being with one another during their stay. If there are any signs of anti-social behaviour from either dog, the introduction progress is ceased immediately.

If your dog has never boarded with us before, it’s highly recommended to book them a Private room so that you know the room is readily available for them to have them self should they require it. It’s very easy for us to change to a Twin Share, but due to availability, it’s not always easy for us to do it the other way around. Please get in touch with us if you’re unsure about which option is best for your dog.

Why are vaccinations important in Boarding Kennels or Pet Resorts on the Gold Coast?

If you’re looking for cat or dog boarding on the Gold Coast, your pet will be required to have current vaccination records. A good dog hotel on the Gold Coast will always protect all its canine and feline guests by making sure they are all up-to-date on their shots and healthy. Puppies and kittens require three initial vaccinations when they’re very young and then annual booster vaccinations and check-ups for life. Our requirements are C5 in dogs, and F3 in cats, and these vaccinations need to be conducted within the last 12 months, but not within 10 days of the arrival date to our resort. Be sure to ask your vet if you have any questions about your pet’s full protection and contact our friendly team to find out more about the vaccination requirements.

I want to say a big 'thank you' to that looked after my princess, Heidi. Normally, a dog would lose weight while in boarding, but if you send your dog here, he will come back with holiday kilos, as well as be taken care of just as they are at home. Will be bringing Heidi back next time!


Just picked up Roxy and Havoc after two weeks overseas. They had a wonderful time, and the feedback I received on my dogs was fabulous. The staff spent a lot of time with them, so there will be a few more holidays for me, knowing my babies are in excellent hands.


We have taken Mischy there several times now and we can leave her knowing that she will be looked after by some wonderful staff. Sometimes we wonder if she wants to come home or stay with the girls. We would recommend AAA Pet Resort to anyone and everyone.


Leaving your pet can be very nerve racking, but AAA Pet Resort were very professional and made it easy to do. They were contactable while we were away and took photos of our gorgeous girl for us to see. When we saw her face we were confident she was being cared for in the right hands.


Ace and Rose has had three stay's now the latest being the longest. They looked very healthy and happy when we collected them. Thank you AAA Pet Resort for taking fantastic care of our two fur babies!
