Welcome to Wagabouts Boarding Kennels & Cattery

Christmas Bookings Update
Please note we are fully booked for dog accommodation from the 20th of Dec to the 7th of Jan.  We still have a few enclosures available for cats, get in quick to avoid disappointment!  

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

Owned and operated by Tim & Nicola, along with our two cats (Coco our 8 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 believe it’s important for us to give individual attention and play with all our guests to ensure their well-being. Bearing this in mind and the fact we also live on the property we know having happy animals means a more peaceful and relaxed environment, (better for our furry guests and us) therefore we strictly limit the number of dogs and cats that can board with us at any one time, and it goes without saying that we do not allow aggressive animals or those with behavioural issues board with us.

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.

The Danes

Our accommodation is warm, clean, spacious & secure, situated in a 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.

We are proud of our facilities and invite you to give us a call to inspect them, so you feel satisfied that your pets will be lovingly cared for.
