We researched this article on dog friendly caravan parks SA as it has been great to see the groundswell of support for the ‘holiday at home’ initiative, as a way of helping people out after the bush fires and storms.
Unfortunately, the pandemic has halted that initiative at this stage through 2021 and even into 2022 we predict.
There have border closures, various levels of lockdown, businesses that have been closed and in some cases that is permanently, parks and beaches closed, flight and travel restrictions; impacts that are beyond the health and economic causes.
Let’s all encourage those people who can still afford to ‘holiday at home’ this year, and well into next most likely.
