Pet Friendly Holidays

Pet-friendly holiday options have grown in Australia. More and more hotels & campsites are becoming pet friendly, including holiday parks and B&Bs, boutique properties and luxury hotels. But you could be charged a pet deposit. With a little bit of planning, you can ensure you, your dog, and other park guests have a relaxing, fun, and memorable holiday.

However, temperatures in Australia can get very hot, and is lethal to leaving pets in a car. Even lower temperatures can cook an animal in a car. Always carry ample water for your pet. If travelling with your pet, it's worth remembering that there will be times you will need to leave your pet unattended. So take this into account when considering whether to take your pet with you.

Dogs and cats cannot be taken into any WA National Park and some caravan parks do not accept pets. During summer many beaches do not permit dogs onto them. When travelling you also have to be wary of snakes, ticks and livestock. Dogs can also like bailing up kangaroos or chasing after other wildlife such as wild pigs, both can have disastrous results. Also make sure all vaccinations, worming tablets and tick treatments are up-to-date & ensure your microchip details are current.


What to take with you:

  • Leash, restraints, collar
  • Medications and first-aid supplies
  • Veterinarian clinic and emergency contacts, including your local vet
  • Official paperwork (e.g., vaccine certifications, medical information)
  • Contacts for the places on your itinerary
  • An appropriate pet carrier
  • Food (meals & snacks)
  • Water


There are a growing amount of websites popping up which are pet-friendly. Here are a few:
