Mccallum, thank you!
NPA, Weipa, and
places have had some good rain :-)
By late December / early
January the rivers were up, many roads closed, and some
locals stuck behind the rivers.
At this stage,
the PDR is closed at Archer River and Myall Creek.
Wenlock and Laura have also been up and down, and will surely be up
again at some
stage during this Wet.
So, the Doggy Guide 2023
is out :-)
All of the below was
updated, plus information added about how to best and easiest
safeguard your dog in the poison baited areas! 🐾
* Should you bring your dog/s?
* Leave your dogs at home?
* Leave your dogs in Cairns?
* Bring your dogs to Cape York
* Which FREE camping
sites on the way up from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and the NT are
throughout Cape York and Cairns area (up the Cape they are far between!)
What ticks we
have in the tropics, and on the Cape
* Which extra
vaccinations you should consider
- against some fatal dog diseases that thrive extra well in the tropics
and Cape York (and are not part of the core vaccinations package that
you routinely get from your vet).
* Where to buy pet gear up here
* Dog events with dates
* Dog services
such as daycare, washing and grooming
* Doggie cafes and
restaurants - some even with a
special doggie menu!
* Where are dogs allowed on the Cape
* Which national parks
are you actually allowed to take your dog/s through, and
what about camping?
* What about dogs on the FREE camping sites?
* Where are the leash free areas in town parks
* What 4WD tracks are
they/not allowed through!
* With maps and photos of the signs, including the remote spots :-)
* Which are the places that you are going to miss out completely if you
travel with dogs?
* and what about
Thursday Island and other Torres Strait Islands?
* Plus - all the accommodation and commercial camping grounds that
accept dogs, updated - each
with their own doggie rules :-)
* And last but not least - 1080
- where specifically, and generally - they are - and how to safely
travel through these areas with your dog/s without cutting their
freedom to run around!
If you already have the
Doggie Guide that you bought within the last two years,
please give me an email and I will send you the latest version :-)
If you don't
- the Dog Guide (just like the Caravan and Trailer Guide) is a
supplementary guide to the main Destination
Guide, and available
inside the main guide (because of the
amount of updating work involved, no other way would be viable).
Valentine is on its way, so you
could give your adventurous partner a
great Valentine present :-)
is found here, and the steps
are easy to follow :-)
FEEDBACK ALWAYS WELCOME
I really appreciate any kind of feedback on the Destination Guide.
Please let me know if you enjoyed it while planning before the trip, and while using the information once on the trip.
If you get any questions about anything, please feel welcome to contact me.
That's all for this time - happy planning, and happy travels to those on the road!!
Have a great day :-)
