Our Travel with
pets in Western Australia .
Travel in the North of Western
Australia takes you through some barren and desert like terrain. The sea
though has few waves and is warm. Fishing is usually excellent and the type of
fish varies along the coast line.
Most rivers are dry but those with water
do usually contain fish like Brim.
Always carry enough water for your trip as
water is scarce in the North. Northampton is the last place you are likely to
get water from and the next place is Carnarvon. After that you wont get water
until you reach Karratha and after that Port Hedland then Broome.. If you take
the other route you can get water at Coral Bay and Exmouth. Distances between
water stops vary from 500km to 800km. It is easy to get sidetracked and stop at
a place you find along the way as it a beautiful country side.
Heartworm tablets is a MUST for pets in
the North. Frontline is also recommended for pets in Carnarvon as it has a Tick
For Humans Bushman's is the only
repellant that will work once you are past Carnarvon. In emergencies raw
Dettol does work but not for long.
Books are still available for travel in
this region, but free camping sites is all but extinct due to the thirst for the
Waste of time places
does not have any thing to offer. The caravan Park there may or may not
accept dogs, seems to depend on the mood of the day. It is also a fair
hike in from the highway. It has a rather small usable beach and the wind
is usually blowing. There are some shops and petrol is available at a high
cost. Not recommended here, but about halfway in is a great river stop
Part of the Fortesque where you can camp and dogs here is fine but from
the parking area it is a steep descent to the water.
