Guinea Pig Boarding

give your furry friend a holiday at Melbourne's only luxury guinea pig hotel!

Willow Woods Cavy Camp is a lovely and relaxing indoor facility custom-designed for guinea pig boarding. We believe that an indoor environment suits guinea pigs better as the ambient temperature can be controlled which eliminates the risk of heatstroke in summer. In addition, the risk of attacks by predators is virtually zero.

Guinea pigs are accommodated in a separate room away from rabbits, as rabbits can pass bacteria (Bordetella bronchiseptica) which can result in a fatal respiratory disease in guinea pigs. Therefore, the room is strictly for guinea pigs only.

Note: We are currently not taking bookings as we are looking to relocate closer to the city in response to customers' requests for a more convenient location. We look forward to boarding your bunnies & guinea pigs again at our new premises in the new future. Stay tuned for announcements!
