Dog friendly holiday ideas

Published: Thursday, 9 May 2019 at 11:31:54 AM

It’s always hard saying goodbye to your beloved pooch before taking off on a holiday, but if you’re planning a trip to Geraldton you won’t need to because it’s a dog-friendly city! Many cafes welcome patrons of all shapes, sizes and tails and there’s also some great outdoor activities that will make for an exciting outing with your four-legged friend.

West End, Marine Terrace in Geraldton

Greenough River Walk Trail

Stretch your legs on this 17km loop walk trail that hugs the Greenough River. It’s just a short drive south of the city centre and has lots of places where you can stop to take in the picturesque view. There are a few hills for you and your four legged friend to conquer, but the walk amongst nature is definitely worth it. We recommend taking water with you as it is secluded and a short drive from shops.

Jaffle Shack

This trendy café has a smorgasbord of jaffle options that are bound to satisfy lovers of savoury and sweet foods! Dogs are welcome at both of their cafes, which are located on the Geraldton Foreshore and Marine Terrace, and they even have a hashtag specifically targeted at their customers with tails called #dogsoftheshack. So if you’re snapping any photos of your doggo enjoying life at the Jaffle Shack be sure to upload them to social media and include the hashtag!

Beresford Foreshore

If you would prefer to take your four legged friend for a walk next to the beach this is the spot to go! The Beresford Foreshore sports new facilities, paths, shade structures as well water bowls for dogs to drink from. It’s a stunning part of Geraldton and there are lots of spots for you to walk to the water’s edge and go for a dip. 

Dog Wash

If your dog needs a hose off after a day of adventuring you’ll be pleased to know there’s a few spots where your mate can freshen up. The Geraldton Car Wash on Lester Avenue has a station where you can wash your dogs and they’ll get everything from warm water, shampoo, conditioner and a blow dry. You can also wash your dog at City Farmers at the Homemaker Centre and the Dog Wash next to Coles Express on the Brand Highway. Your dog will be smelling fresh as a daisy in no time.
