Pack your four-legged friends’ bags and head on down to Merimbula Beach Holiday Resort! Merimbula is one of the most beautiful holiday destinations, known specifically for its coastal magic. This holiday resort is located along the stretch of NSW’s south coast. This holiday park is super pet-friendly and offers a multitude of powered and unpowered sites. There are plenty of boardwalks and beaches to choose from and bring your pet along to. They will love the fresh air and the smell of the sea breeze. The Main Beach and Short Point allow for off-leash activity and also the Bega River if you feel like a walk. Another family and pet friendly favourite is the boardwalk that starts at Twofold Bay and ends at Lake Curalo.
Give you and your pet some R&R this holiday period at Minjerribah Camping site, North Stradbroke Island. We absolutely love this destination as this campground has something for everyone. In terms of the campsite, your pets need to be kept on their lead. But there are SO many spots they can run free. Home Beach, Rocky Point and Rocky Headland in front of the Point Lookout Hotel are the best places to let your pet run free and enjoy the atmosphere. These spots are also great for picnics and a chill. The Skatebowl Park, situated in Dunwich between the skate bowl and the fenced off area is another must when taking your pet out of the campsite.
Heading to South Australia and need the best place to host you and your furry companions? Our top pick is Cradock Hotel Campground in the Flinders Ranges. Your pet will LOVE you for it, especially if you are taking your dog. This destination is a 20-minute drive from Hawker and is super close to the mountain ranges, exciting gorges and gives you a great opportunity to connect with the wildlife at Ikara-Flinders National Park. This will also let you increase your step count as the walk around this National Park is super enjoyable and easy to navigate. This campsite is fully facilitated, where showers and toilets are only $2. This is definitely a bucket-list location for you and your furry loved one. Enjoy!
One of the biggest must-dos when you are travelling with your pet around WA is to visit Logue Brook Campground in Yarloop. This is a gorgeous location to let your pet run free and enjoy the scenery and fun atmosphere. This campground is 135kms from Perth and super close to the coast. This campsite is a one hit wonder and features picnic tables, kitchens, boat ramps and nearby cafes that you can also bring your pet to.
