Welcome to Wagabouts

Closing Down Friday the 31st of January 2020

Changing personal family circumstances means we are no longer able to provide this service for the East Coast. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for your support over the last 18 months.


We are a boutique, small breed dog boarding kennel & cattery, situated 2 minutes off the Tasman Highway between St Helens and Scamander on the beautiful North East Coast of Tasmania.

Tim and Nic St Helen Nov 2017Owned and operated by Tim & Nicola, along with our two cats (Coco our 9 year old very sensible Burmese and Jack the annoying little brother who is a 2 year old Burmese).

Our love of animals and vision for Wagabouts is to ensure a happy, healthy, safe and stress-free home away from home for your pets.

We strictly limit the number of dogs and cats that can board with us at any one time, this ensures we can give individual attention and play with all our guests to ensure their well-being.

Our guests are happy at Wagabouts as it is a peaceful and relaxed environment.  We do not board dogs that have not been socialised, cannot be mixed with others, or show any behavioural issues including uncontrollable barking or aggression.

We provide SMS or email updates with photos of your pet during their stay to ensure your peace of mind that they are healthy, happy and safe. 

Wagabouts reputation brings clients from near and far. We are known for the care we provide which shows when your pet is happy when you pick them up, and they are happy to return.

Our accommodation is warm in Winter, cool in Summer, (we have reverse cycle heating and cooling in the kennels & cattery) clean, spacious and secure, situated in The Kennels Interiora peaceful bush setting. Daily playtime activities are within safe and secure enclosures, and all walks are always on lead so you have no need to worry.
