Hello everyone,

Fantastic site, I have been a regular visitor since i started planning our TRIP a few months ago.

We will be doing a four month tour of WA and the Territory and will be travelling with two very well behaved dogs - an old kelpie and a jack russell terrier. We would like to know if anyone can tell us if it is OK to travel with dogs along the section of the Coral Bay- Exmouth track south of the NP. From reading forum threads here, it appears areas such as Nngaloo Station are a must. Has anyone taken their pets with them along this stretch of coast? Are they allowed?

I have ran a few searches here about the topic and have found some helpful info, but nothing on this specific area regarding dogs/pets.

Thanx in Advance

Luke and Jenny

G'day Luke

When I lived in Exmouth we used to take our dog through the National Park and then south of Yardie Creek and out of the National Park. The rangers had no control over this as the dog stayed in the car and it was on a gazetted road. There werent any problems with taking the dog with us. But then again you didnt have to pay to go into the park either back then (10 years ago!!)

I'd check that the area hasnt been baited with 1080 just to be sure. I'm not sure what the "rules" would be in the designated camping areas like Lefroy Bay. There are plenty of places to camp. Just try and find a spot where you cant see anyone else....good luck!!

Its a great section of coast and offers good fishing, even off the shore.

Have fun.

Thanks everyone,

Sounds like its a goer. Will have the tinny fully set up to get serious about some fishing.

It's kinda funny, I can see why dogs are not permitted in some areas because of sensitive wildlife, but on the other hand I have never seen a dog leave empty cans in the wilderness!!
