Thanks for dropping by to read our article on dog friendly holiday ideas WA.
Due to covid and travel we have had economic impacts, education effects, increased mental health concerns, stress of keeping heads above water financially.
These things are also going to be here for a long time, especially now that this country is officially in a recession.
Earlier in 2020, on a timeline between the bushfires and the initial impact of the pandemic there was a lot of media dialogue and social media support for a “holiday at home” to help areas that had lost their tourism income.
That idea is still there for many people; it’s just a case of waiting for some kind of normality to return.
Even as this is being written we have seen state borders open, close again; there have been restrictions on intrastate travel in some instances, let alone interstate ones.
These are our suggested 10 dog friendly holidays within Western Australia.
