Holidaying with Dogs

We love dogs and we want you to bring your dog on holiday!  

Esperance is a very dog friendly town. So you don't miss out on visiting the national parks, or going on a fantastic tour, Country Lane Boarding Kennel on Myrup road (just off Fisheries road, call Jo on 0488 929 442) and Abalee Kennels on Sheldon Road can board your dog (phone 0418 81 3344). And for dog grooming, Doggy Wellness Esperance is located in Balmoral Square (Ph: 9071 3363). So book your pooch in for some pampering while you head out and enjoy our wonderful area.

The cycle path along the Esplanade is a great place to walk your dog. The best walk in town is on Twilight Beach Road. Drive to the West Beach carpark and get onto the cyclepath there and head towards Blue Haven.

Twilight Cove is the only beach along the drive you cannot take your dog. All the other beaches (West Beach, 10-mile lagoon, etc) are dog friendly.

There are a few bush camping areas where you can camp with your dog too - please click here for more info.

You cannot "bush" camp along the Great Ocean Drive or close to the town centre. Five caravan parks in town accept your dogs (some with conditions), please use them. Enjoy your holiday - and we hope your dog enjoys their holiday too
