Holidays are made for relaxing, chilling and spending time with loved ones, including those with four paws. So, you’re looking for a holiday destination that you and your fur-baby will enjoy? And you’ve landed here, discover why Lancelin is the ideal family getaway?
Bark all about it!
Only 1.5 hours north of Perth, it is the pawwwfect destination to bring your pooch along for the journey. Lancelin avoids long car rides and toilet stops, making it easy and enjoyable for the whole family.
We’ve dug-up all the activities, venues and accommodations available to do in Lancelin that are dog-friendly.
Starting with getting back to nature, which Lancelin is renowned for, striking beaches, magnificent sand dunes and plenty of bush walks. Understanding where you can and cannot go with your dog will make it a much more enjoyable experience for all (nobody wants a visit from the Ranger whilst on holidays!).
Swim, Dig, Roll & Zoomies!
If your dog loves the surf, digging in the sand and has a lot of built-up energy to release then the off-lead beaches are ideal for you. Dogs are allowed to walk with their owners off their leads anywhere north of Shell and Gingin Street intersection. If you’re staying south-end of town then anything south of Carl Street beach track is also an off-led area – this includes our famous back beach. To ensure it is a pleasant experience for all when allowing your dog off lead you still need to be able to recall and control your dog.
If you like to stroll along at a more scenic pace and maybe a little less chaotic then the stretch of coastline between Shell and Carl Street beach track, dogs are allowed but they must be on their lead.
