Question: What has four legs and is now welcome in our holiday park?


Answer: Pets! Yes that’s right, Shaws Bay is now Pet Friendly, and we can’t wait to meet your furry family members!

Park managers Mitch and Mel are very proud to announce that we are now a Pet Friendly park! This is great news for all our guests who want to be able to include their lovable pet on their holiday to East Ballina. We are Pet Friendly from July 1st 2015.


For those of you who may not be aware of what Ballina can offer your additional family member, I have gathered some essential information:


Where to go and what to do:

Dogs are permitted (on leash) at the following beaches in and near Ballina, all which are close to our holiday park, enjoy a day together, with the WHOLE family!

  • Sharpes Beach, Skennars Head
  • Angels Beach, East Ballina
  • Ballina Spit
  • Seven Mile Beach, Lennox Head
  • Patches Beach, South Ballina

Dogs are also welcome along the North Wall (adjacent to our holiday park) as long as they are leashed, so you can exercise your pet with ease here at Shaws Bay.


Keep em Clean:

Our local Pet Stock store (Located in Ballina Homemaker centre) has a FREE doggy wash area for you to wash and dry your dog. Pet Stock’s professional staff are sure to find you anything else you need for your pet whilst on holidays!


Park Facilities:

Shaws Bay will allow pets onto our sites and we also have arranged for a Pet Friendly cabin! We have doggy-doo-bag dispensers located in numerous positions around our park, making it easier for you to clean up doggy mess.



I will keep you updated as we come up with more ideas to make our park Pet Friendly; it is something we are really excited about!
