Kalbarri is one of the most notable resort towns on Australia’s Coral Coast. A six-hour drive from Perth, the town sits where the Murchison River opens into the Indian Ocean. It is surrounded by the expansive Kalbarri National Park, where visitors indulge in awe-inspiring eons-old inland gorges, massive coastal cliffs, and vast fields of seasonal wildflowers. Just south of the town are the Blue Holes, a protected biodiverse haven for snorkelers and casual swimmers alike. Unsurprisingly, Kalbarri is host to a wide variety of accommodations, some of which are open to visitors with dogs and other pets. Keep reading as we will tackle some of the best pet- and dog-friendly accommodations in Kalbarri, Australia.

Blue Holes Beach Blue Holes Beach

This home's proximity to Blue Holes Beach is a definite pro. The fish habitat area located just south of Kalbarri has protected waters and rock pools, creating a natural aquarium for marine life and a safe area for kids to swim and explore. Our 3 kids absolutely loved this spot. It was the perfect place for them to start snorkeling and had lots to see too.
