Our Story

Cat boarding at it’s finest and Scenic Rim’s premier boarding cattery.

*****When only the best will do for your cat!*****

Scenic Rim Cat Lodge (Est. 2011) is a luxury cat boarding cattery which is exclusively feline. The cattery offers only 21 spacious stylish units, ensuring plenty of personalised attention and care.

Scenic Rim Cat Lodge, located at the base of Mount Tamborine at Boyland Qld (Gold Coast Hinterland), offers a very loving, caring, homely and meticulously clean environment. The highest priority being the comfort and well being of your cat. Owners can go away with the freedom knowing their furry family member is being extremely well cared for in their absence. All units offer superior comfort, space and style. Fully air conditioned for those hot summer days, and heating for warmth during winter.

The Lodge is surrounded by bush land with views up to Mount Tamborine, and down to the distant valleys. Set on an elevated 3.4 acres, 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, Mount 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 three styles of accommodation in the cattery, Standard Units, Deluxe Units and Recovery Units. All Standard and Deluxe Units come 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.
