Willow Woods is a delightful retreat in Hopper’s Crossing, just 25 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. A custom-built sanctuary dedicated only to bunnies and guinea pigs where fresh air, natural light and tranquillity are the order of the day, with fun and stimulating spaces where our furry guests can indulge in what they love best – digging, chewing, flinging toys, hiding and running through tunnels.

Our light-filled indoor hotel with windows, skylights, extractor fans and reverse cycle air-conditioning and heating units, keeps the ambient temperature comfortable 24/7 throughout Winter and Summer.

Come tour our beautiful hotel on Saturdays from 11am to 12.30pm by appointment only.

What Some of Our Parents Say

  • “I can’t recommend Willow Woods enough. After researching all the bunny boarding places no one really seemed to know what bunnies really needed. They would keep them outdoors (potentially exposing them to myxomatosis) and feeding them things like corn which can kill them. Willow Woods knew exactly the right requirements for bunnies, including diet, vaccinations, litter training etc. They even watched my bunnies 24/7 and picked up when one of my bunnies was behaving differently because he had to be quarantined and was separated from my other bunny (he was lonely). They put their cages next to each other and he perked up immediately. Willow Woods had no trouble looking after my grumpy (and nipping) bunny so they really must be bunny whisperers. 🙂 The updates, pictures and videos are so reassuring to get, and let you know that you made the right decision choosing Willow woods. This is the only place my bunny babies will be staying when i go on holidays. My bunnies mean too much to me to send them anywhere else.”

    -Sarah H.

  • “Willow Woods is a rabbit owners dream. They provide high quality care in their grooming and boarding services and are so passionate about rabbits. They are always happy for me to pop by and offer any advice and assistance. The first thing I say to any new bunny friends is “Have you been to Willow Woods?” Support this local bunny business instead of pet stores and you won’t ever regret it!”

    -Emma J

  • “Great facility. Willow Woods was very professional and my guinea pigs were well treated. Would recommend to anyone looking for a guinea pig carer while on holiday.”
