I just thought I would recommend an alternative to using a cattery or a kennel and that is someone called Dawn. Her website is www.dawnthepetnanny.com and she looks after pets in their own home. I've used her twice now and she is very professional/trustworthy and is a real animal lover with loads of experience. Her prices are very reasonable and she often offers discounts. She is based in Mawson Lakes and also offers other services like dog walking etc and while you are away she brings in the post and puts the bins out. I live in Largs Bay so she is prepared to travel a bit.
