Free Dog Friendly Campsites

If you can’t stand the idea of leaving your dog behind and going on a camping trip, the good news is you don’t have to. There are campsites and rest areas throughout Australia that allow you to bring your best friend with you.

Camps 10 has over 3,935 PET Friendly sites listed
Caravan Parks Australia Wide has over 1,830 PET Friendly parks listed.

Travelling with your dog is a great way to bond and is a special treat for them. The excitement they will experience from being included in your trip is priceless – they get the chance to stick their nose out the window, explore new places with new smells and, most importantly, spend time with their dearly loved owner.

Please read our Dog Camping Etiquette blog for some tips.
