Why no pets
by: Anonymous

Could you please tell me why dogs are not allowed at Cape Leveque?

Not in detail, since I don't make the rules. Pets are not usually allowed in national and nature parks, pets are not welcome at most accommodation and campsites. I would assume the reasons to not allow pets on the Dampier Peninsula are similar to the reasons for other bans.

It costs you a $300.00 fine!

Lobby Your Polly

The only reason one can see why pets are not allowed on the Dampier Pen is to save your dog from fleas and desece that ravishes through out the million or so camp dogs in the area.

It's a power thing having given the power to the abos and greenies. No one has the guts to say enough. I lobby my Polly every week and I ask you to lobby yours.

Common sense Required

Dogs are not allowed in National Park and Reserves because they kill the native animals. If you want to visit ecologically sensitive areas, don't take a dog - should be blindingly obvious!

What if I have a pet Koala?

Travel to Cape Leveque with Koalas
by: Birgit

:-) Seeing that koalas cannot bear being without other koalas, I assume you are bringing a few of them. So you will need to hire a big enough car with enough seats and book a large enough room or tent.
Book well in advance and make sure that both your car and your tent have a good aircon!

Do not expect the camp to be able to supply leaves of any of your koalas favourite eukalypt species. Do make sure you bring a large enough supply! Depending on the length of your visit this may require a trailer. You should not have any problems towing a trailer on that road, but it needs to be a true off-road trailer with good suspension.

The vegetation up there is very open, comprised of shrubs rather than large trees. To be honest, I don't think your koalas will enjoy the Cape quite as much as you will. But hey, who knows, they might be more open to new experiences than we give them credit for!

Hope you will send us a trip report ;-)

I travel with a cockatiel. Am I able to bring him to the Cape??

No dogs !!!
by: Beverley

No dogs so no us. Simple.

Still no yes or no on my bird???? I do understand about dogs and cats. I have just left a free park where a number of dog owners though it funny to watch their dogs chase the scrub turkeys. A local point out that if either of their dogs did harm any of the local birds they would be asked to leave and never come back. I ask the question again, am I able to camp there with my cockatiel???

dogs somewhere along the cape
by: Anonymous

is there anywhere along that area you can take your dogs

Its like not being able to take beer/alcohol into some of these areas. If the locals are unable to control their in take of alcohol and commit violent acts then we must all be this way????
Edward river is an example. The locals run their own club/pub and sell alcohol at certain times. It can not taken away from this area. Why then am I not able to take alcohol to my camp and drink it in my camp???? If I take it anywhere else I get a fine. Iif you take your pet to Cape Leveque and let it roam around or not on a lead then you get a fine. Make the fine $1000 or $1500 but do not lump us all into one boat because you are unable to control YOURSELF. Remember it is our money that you want to keep these places running!

People should get their facts correct. There are camping sites that allow dogs. Check wikicamps or Camps.
