House sitting and pet sitting in Australia

Want to cuddle adorable animals and stay Down Under for free? It's time to go house and pet sitting in Australia!

From Melbourne to Perth, find free accommodation in Australia by caring for people's pets and homes while they're away. Want to see the famous sights of Sydney or explore the Outback? Or perhaps you just want to experience firing up a barbie in your own Bondi backyard? Whatever your reason, you'll find every day is g'day when you're house sitting in Australia. There are plenty of haunts that welcome fluffy locals, so let's find out how Australian pet sitting can help you explore the country.

Melbourne

If you're dog sitting in Australia, Melbourne is one of the most floof-friendly cities on the planet. Leash up Fido and head off for a tail-wagging tour around the city. Visit Darwin to learn about Aboriginal history or take in the Gothic past at Sydney's Annandale Abbey. Collingwood's Dog Cafe is one of Melbourne's best dog-friendly lunch destinations, so order some pup-corn and watch those tails wag!

Cairns 

Australian dog sitting is a great way to explore a new city, and there’s nothing better than company when you roam. Take your new best friend to Trinity Beach, and enjoy off-leash wandering at both the northern and southern ends. Alternatively, go for a stroll along the Esplanade, which runs through sniff-tastic tropical parklands. Fancy a dip? Head for Goomboora Park. One of the best off-leash parks in Cairns also has a dog-safe swimming spot! Edged by a forest with a creek running through it, this is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike.

Darwin and Kakadu National Park

Kakadu Park is the biggest reserve in Australia, so if you want to get to know the local wildlife, this is the place for it. Pet sitter jobs couldn't be more fun. You'll get to visit Aboriginal sites, explore the Savannah Woodlands, and experience the magnificence of the tidal flats. For some precious pup-bonding time, pop Fido into the car and take in the Jabiru coastline. Just remember to pack the treats!

Sydney 

Cat sitting in Australia? Then visit the Sydney Opera House. One of the most famous buildings in the world, its interior is as impressive as its architecture. It hosts ballets, opera, Shakespeare, and more. Every day comes with a new show on this stage! If you're visiting this Australian cat sitting destination, don't miss the world-famous Bondi Beach. With sweeping white sands and the popular Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, dog sitters can take advantage too!
