Our Story

Scenic Rim Cat Lodge (Est. 2011) is a cat boarding cattery facility which is exclusively feline only. Set on an elevated 3.4 acres, Scenic Rim Cat Lodge is a boutique cattery offering only 21 stylish units, ensuring plenty of personalised attention and care. The cattery is in the beautiful Scenic Rim region at Boyland (Gold Coast Hinterland), which is just near either Tamborine or Canungra. The Lodge is surrounded by bushland with views up to Mt Tamborine, and down to the distant valleys. The picturesque surroundings are regularly frequented by kangaroos, koalas and the local bird life.

Scenic Rim Cat Lodge is located just 5 minutes from Canungra or Tamborine, 35 minutes from the Gold Coast, and 1 hour from Brisbane. Local areas of Beaudesert, Beechmont, Jimboomba, Mt Tamborine, Mundoolun, Logan Village and Boonah are just a short drive from the cattery.

The Cattery is owned and managed by Scott and Alexandra, local residents of Boyland / Canungra, who live on the premises.

“We have created a safe and secure environment, where care and attention is of the utmost standard. It is a welcoming and harmonious environment for both the cat and its owner. Your feline will be warm in winter and cool in summer in a happy, caring environment. Our cattery is fully air conditioned.

You can holiday with peace of mind, knowing that your cat is content and relaxed, with a feeling of security in its home away from home”.

There are two styles of accommodation in the cattery, Standard Units and Deluxe Units, all with an individual outdoor sunning enclosure overlooking natural bush scenery. Deluxe units also come equipped with furnishings and LED LCD TV’s.

Being a boutique luxury cattery, our personalised attention and care to our guests is of the highest.
