Things To Do In Brisbane: Pet Sitters Edition

If you’ve been chosen for a house and pet sitting job in Brisbane, there are so many things you can do to enjoy your time in the city. And to make your pet sitting adventures more memorable, we have listed a few things you can do in Brisbane with your new furry friend.


Morning or afternoon run around dog parks – Did you know that inner Brisbane has more than 135 off-leash dog parks? Yep. Pet and pet sitters can get a lot of exercise and fun just running and interacting with other pets (and humans). When pet and sitter needs refueling, there are cafes and restaurants nearby.

Cool off in dog-friendly beaches – Nudgee beach is the closest and most popular dog walking stretch of beach or you can do a bit of a drive to Home Beach on North Stradbroke Island where dogs are allowed to enjoy sand and sea.


Hiking at Mt Coot-tha Forest – Unlike most state reserves, Mt. Coot-tha Forest is a city park so pets and their pet sitters can spend the day hiking up to the summit and enjoy crisp mountain air and great views of the city.


Surf Connect with the Pup – If you’re into kayaking and paddleboarding and want to bring your new furry friend along, Surf Connect in Sandgate hires out kayaks and paddle boards for adventure-loving humans and pups.

Weekend Market Shopping – No visit to Brisbane is complete without shopping for fresh fruits and veggies in the weekend farmers’s markets. Don’t worry most of these weekend markets allow pets, so it’s a great way for pets and pet sitters to bond (and shop for food, too).


There are so much more places in Brisbane that you can explore. And as a pet sitter, why not share those adventures with your new friend?
