A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden

Don't leave your fur kids home or in boarding kennels
This is Part 2 of the article on pet-friendly sites for holidays and you can see Part 1 here.
In this article, I will not give as much detail about each individual place, as I am giving you the links for each pet-friendly caravan and camping parks and I want to give you as great a choice as possible in the article.
You can then make up your mind on which one or ones you would like to go to with your beloved pooch!

Be mindful also that in some areas there are fox and feral cat baits, so make sure your dog is on lead where required. You also need to check the requirements for dogs as you mostly need to advise that you have a pet when booking. And don't forget, vaccinations must be up to date, and most caravan and camping places require a bond for the dog!
My two fur babies are definitely unhappy when I kennel them when I go on holidays but after these two articles, they are waiting patiently for their turn to go on such an adventure!
Hurry up guys I'm waiting -Image: Pixabay
MARGARET RIVER REGION
Flinders Bay Caravan Park
This Park is Augusta's only beachfront holiday park and offers a fabulous base from which to explore this beautiful part of the southwest.
This caravan park is uniquely located just a 2-minute walk to the town centre, Busselton Jetty, safe swimming beaches and local hotels. Dogs must be on leads and are not allowed during the Christmas and Easter holidays.
Rest Point Holiday Village is a unique and picturesque waterfront location, located in the heart of the Walpole wilderness, on the banks of the Walpole and Nornalup Inlet Marine Park. It is surrounded by the Walpole-Nornalup National Park.
Red Bluff is located on Quobba Station and is one of Australia's most spectacular, rugged, authentic and unique outback coastal working stations. It is located 140 km north of Carnarvon and allows dogs only in certain areas.
This site is located 7 km east of Collie township on the Collie/Darkan Road.
Stockton Lake is another bush camping and swimming area which was originally an open cut coal mine, but has long been abandoned and has filled with water. It's very popular for boating and water skiing.
There are more smaller, less know camping sites throughout Western Australia. however. many of these even though they could be pet-friendly, do not have good facilities for campers, so I have not included them.
Bon voyage, drive carefully, and most of all, enjoy this time with your family and pets!
