Travelling with Dogs in the Kimberley
Many people love to travel with dogs, but finding pet-friendly accommodation can be an issue in the Kimberley. The good news is if you plan ahead, you should be able to manage these restrictions.
There are very limited places along the Gibb River Road that will allow you to travel with a dog, so you will need to plan ahead.
Dog-Friendly Accommodation in Broome and Surrounds
Not all caravan parks in Broome will accept dogs. The only dog-friendly park located within Broome itself is the Taranagau Caravan Park at Cable Beach. Outside of Broome there are some other options.

the Manari Beaches just north of Broome – Willie Creek, Quandong, James Price Point and Columb Point
Just north of Broome, you are not allowed to take your dog into the Dampier Peninsular and Cape Leveque. However, you can take a dog to the Manari Beaches – Willie Creek, Quandong, James Price Point and Columb Point). These beaches are slightly closer to Broome and are a good alternative for dog owners.
