Planning the great Australian Drive, leaving Perth and heading North-West, we are self contained and have 2 small dogs plus a disabled person in wheelchair.
We are unable to travel long distances at a time because of the disabled person and wanted to know as many off road campsite as possiable between our distinations.
Also caravan parks that allow dogs.
Would appreicate any information regarding any or all of these adventures.

Maryann,Your requirements are very specific and because of this there a few detailed books have been written on the subject. I have anticipated these requirements in travellers and have books in stock in our shop that cover your needs. Suggest - Travelling with Dogs and one (or more) of the following: Bush Camps and Rest Areas Around Australia, Bush Camps and Rest Areas Throughout Australia, Bush Camps and Rest Areas Across Australia, Priceless Campsites in the North of WA, Priceless Campsites in the South of WA, Camps Australia Wide. They are all indexed in the shop under Camping Guides and Travel Guides for the Travelling with Dogs book.

Lots of Oz has pullover and camp for the night possibilities. Some are not legal, but usually no problem if you are not being offensive and only stay one night. Tassie however is another thing. There is barely a pull-off spot anywhere. Sometimes you have to travel a long distance to pull off the road with a Mini! Your disabled person will of course have problems. My Mum is in a wheelchair [MS] and she and Dad are restricted to Motels with facilities. I often wonder whether this is a restriction they have succumbed to or whether they could have roughed it more. Some people just don't like it. cheers Royce

Thanks for the information Royce especially about Tasmania, as it its one of the main place we wanted to spend quite a bit of time there.
Looks like I will have to do some more homework.
We have a 4wd support vehicle as well, so establishing a base and exploring will have to be the way.

As Royce said, there are heaps of places to pull over. These best place to camp, I have found, is in front of a
' NO CAMPING ' sign :-)))........Cheers, Willie
