Thanks for reading our article on dog friendly camping WA. Western Australia is a BIG state twice the size of Queensland, so finding pet friendly camping Western Australia can be a bit of a mission.

What a year 2021 has been! Things were bad enough with drought affected areas, bush fires, cyclones and flooding.

Then we got the impact of COVID-19, a pandemic like we have never seen before in our lifetimes.

The loss of so many lives globally has been a huge shock; in turn, previously we would never have envisaged such heartache in this country.

We have put this guide together as many people with dogs cannot always afford to put their pet into a pet motel; instead wanting to take them on holiday with them.
