Your dog is welcome at Manna Gum Escape



Your furry friend, who is also welcome under strict yet standard conditions, will love the walks along the trails and exploring the surrounds.

The property itself is unfenced however there is a large enclosed dog area with a kennel for your use when booking the HOUSE.

Dogs are also welcome at the STUDIO however there is no fenced area for your dog so they would need to stay on a lead when outside.


Please keep in mind that Manna Gum Escape is set in natural bush surrounds with an abundance of wildlife. Kangaroos, wombats, possums, native birds etc. If your dog has a tendency to chase or get excited by wildlife we would suggest that you may want to consider a different style of property, for your dogs own safety and the preservation of the natural environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Getaway We had a lovely stay at Manna Gum. Was great to be able to bring our dog, although he wasn't keen on the enclosed dog run! A great spot to explore the surrounding areas. Nice and clean and a gorgeous property to explore.
