Tips & Guides
12th Oct 2020

At Jayco, we know many of our customers love to bring along their furry friends on their adventures. This is especially true when heading away for a long weekend or the school holidays – and is made all the easier when you own your own RV!

We also know there are plenty of things you have to think about when bringing your pet on holidays, including pet friendly caravan parks, ensuring your pet is up to date with vaccinations and making sure there are areas where your pet can stretch their legs each day.

To help, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite pet friendly beaches across the nation for you and your pooch to enjoy!

Noosa Heads Dog Beach, Noosa

This hidden gem is located at the end of Hastings Street, tucked behind the Noosa Woods. With a low tide and shallow waters, this beach is perfect for little kids and dogs alike. It is also an off-leash area so your pooch has plenty of space to roam.

Henley Beach, South Australia

Located less than 10 kilometres from Adelaide CBD, Henley Beach is one of the most popular beaches for people and pets. Note, there are a few times of year where dogs must be on a leash so check out the rules before you go.

Tallow Beach, Byron Bay

While not all of this beach is dog friendly, there is a great stretch between Jarmon Street and the National Park that is doggy heaven. If you love to surf, this is a must see with some excellent waves, particularly for more expert surfers.

Kilcunda, Victoria

Located smack bang between Phillip Island and Wonthaggi is Kilcunda. Dogs are permitted on Kilcunda Beaches at all times if they’re on a leash, but there is also a spot right near the Kilcunda Foreshore Caravan Park where dogs are allowed off leash.

Dunsborough Foreshore, Margaret River

The stunning Dunsborough Foreshore is the perfect pet and family friendly beach located in the heart of the Margaret River region. Dogs are allowed in a few different areas of this beach, so make sure you check all the rules before you head there. Plus, there are plenty of other areas in the Margaret River region where dogs are welcome, including caravan parks, breweries and wineries.

 

A final reminder, some beaches might have a curfew for when pets can visit. You also need to remember litter bags and ensure they stay away from any national parks that might be near the beach.
