“Who let the dogs out” Well try Lake Macquarie!

October 11, 2018 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Lake Macquarie Tourism says that when travelling on family holidays it’s RUFF to leave your furry friends behind, saying that Lake Macquarie is the paw-fect pet’s paradise with thirty dog exercise areas, including designated beaches and sportsgrounds where dogs can run free, as well as pet friendly accommodation for longer stays.

According to Lake Macquarie Tourism Pooch there are plenty of pooch exercise and play areas, including, Speers Point Fenced Dog Exercise Area, Lake Macquarie’s first fenced dog park, opened earlier this year and  sure to get tails wagging, with the new facility located in Speers Point Park providing a 10,000m2 fenced, off-leashed area complete with 3 dog agility stations, a water fountain for both pups and their owners, a shaded picnic table, bench chairs and of course plenty of green grass for your pooch to enjoy.  Just a short stroll around the corner is Sal’s by the Lake where you can grab yourself a delicious coffee and a beagle… whoops, we mean bagel!

For dogs that love the beach and a swim, there is Redhead Beach, an idyllic location for pooches and their parents at the northerly end of a stunning nine-mile coastal stretch, the perfect spot for chasing waves (the dog, not you) and to enjoy panoramic views on an off-leash stroll.

Another Lake Macquarie favourite among the local humans and dogs isBlacksmiths Beach is one of Lake Mac’s top swimming beaches, where dog lovers can get the family together, pack some sunscreen, lunch and your pups’ favourite ball, and enjoy the warmer weather at Blacksmiths Beach.

Finally, a firm family and four-legged friend favourite, and with good reason, Hams Beach is located at the northern end of Caves Beach and with rock pools aplenty, this is the perfect spot for off-leash exploring with your loveable mutt.

If you want to take your favourite family member aka your dog on holiday or even for a weekend then Lake Macquarie has a barking good selection including just a short stroll from one of New South Wales’ best-loved, off-leash beaches, Blacksmiths Beachside Holiday Park boasts beautiful grassy powered and unpowered sites suitable for your fur babies outside of school holidays and other peak periods. Blacksmiths is the perfect base for lengthy strolls with your pooch, or just kicking back and enjoying the long summer days by the campsite (please note restrictions to some dog breeds apply).

Idyllically tucked between pristine beaches and serene Lake Macquarie,Belmont Lakeside Holiday Park is exceptionally located for creating a fabulous family adventure which your furry friend can join too. Your pup is welcome year-round on all sites, so they won’t feel like they’re missing out on all the fun. Not only is Belmont Lakeside Holiday Park a hound hotspot, it’s been nominated as a 2018 finalist for the Caravan and Camping Awards of Excellence, so it’s worth seeing what all the hype it about.

If you have a pampered pooch who loves a family night in watching a movie (preferably staring the likes of Marmaduke, Lassie or Scooby-Do),Aurora House is the paw…lace to be, with the newly renovated home sleeping up to 8 people and allowing your pups to come inside and be close to their favourite humans. Just be sure to let the owners there will be some extra “children” aka joining the holiday and they do request that they are kept off carpeted areas and furniture.

Finally, for a pooch that likes the wild side and running wild, Selby Lakeside Cottage has a large, fenced, grassy backyard and a stunning outdoor setting to sit back and enjoy the entertainment, creating a pet’s paradise, with previous guests at the 2-bedroom cottage raving about how perfect this home was for their doggies, making it clear there’s absolutely nothing to be sniffed at here.

Clearly Lake Macquarie is paws down the best place for furry families to play, swim and stay, so to plan your pet friendly adventure or discover more of what Lake Macquarie has to offer, please visit:
