Travelling the Kimberley with dogs
Hi Birgit, have just purchased your Destination Kimberley book and I must say that I'm impressed. I plan a trip there towards end of August and would like your advice on just one thing: travelling the Kimberley with a dog.
I will be travelling by myself, photography being my main interest, and plan on staying away from the popular/populated van parks etc., and spend more time in isolated areas.
I plan on taking my dog with me. As I'm sure all owners would say, she is a well behaved dog, lives with wildlife around my place and never wanders far from me.
Apart from the obvious places where dogs are not permitted (and I don't plan to go there) do you think that she could be a hindrance????
Update!!! This question and my original answer is from 2008! For current info on travelling the Kimberley and Gibb River Road with dogs see this page.
