Taking dogs on holidays is as much fun for them as it is for us I think. Like us, I’m sure they enjoy the social side of interacting with other humans and dogs. Dog friendly caravan parks are very popular and with more people travelling with pets they are catering more to the needs of four legged visitors, including installing dog washing facilities at some parks.
The locality of Port Hughes on Yorke Peninsula is just minutes from the town of Moonta and is a popular spot particularly for the fishing. Whether you want to try your luck on the jetty or launch a boat from the multi laned boat ramp, it’s a well known spot for fishos to head to. There are two caravan parks, a picturesque swimming beach, a store and café, and the Port Hughes Tavern is proving to be a big drawcard too.
This campaign was launched by Tourism Australia in January 2020, as part of a national bushfire recovery effort to encourage Australian’s to see their own backyard, whether it was for a weekend away or a longer journey. It was tapping into the idea that a lot of Australians wanted to assist communities impacted by the horrific bushfires experienced over the summer and promoted ideas to visit areas impacted directly or indirectly and spend in the shops, restaurants, hotels, caravan parks – anywhere and everywhere.
Now more than ever you are probably looking for a little distraction from the overload of doom and gloom gripping the world. Yes we need to hear and heed advice that is coming out daily if not hourly from the experts, but for our sanity we also all need to unplug ourselves from this constant feed and just breathe, relax and chill.

I thought it was time for a post to explain who I am and why the website? Firstly thanks for stopping by and whether you found it by accident or were searching for something, I hope I can help you. If you’re travelling in Australia and in particular if you are planning a road trip I might be able to help you find some interesting places to visit and ideas on what to do when you get there.
Neo is one lucky kelpie. Firstly he is our much loved family member who we rescued over 5 years ago, so that was his first stroke of luck. Since then he has happily accompanied us on holidays that a lot of people can only dream of. The reason he is so welcome has a lot to do with his demeanor. He is the most gentle and friendly boy and very obedient too. He rarely barks, usually only when he sees someone he knows and they’re taking too long to come and pat him.
