Enzo Travel Dog team travelled the section from Cairns to Karumba which is sealed all the way, though the bitumen often gets down to a single lane towards the Gulf. Cairns There’s a lot to see […]

Enzo walks Port Douglas

The town has many quality restaurants [which the folks love], many are dog friendly outdoors. It is also a popular jumping off point for Great Barrier Reef trips. We […]

Townsville, street art and great dog walks

July 10, 2020

In Townsville we discovered a tropical regional city with street art and great dog walks. We had a couple of good lunches at dog friendly cafes and found a van park we’ll probably use again next time. We didn’t go to Magnetic Island on this occasion: there are restrictions on dogs on the ferry and […]

Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays

July 5, 2020

Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays is a bit like the Greek Islands in Queensland with beautiful beaches and lots of sailing!  In short, it is an Enzo Top Spot. We stayed at the Seabreeze Tourist Park at Cannonvale Beach; a nice dog friendly park! This is our first blog since the Coronavirus Pandemic began. The […]

Canoeing, Campfires and Sunsets: Lara Wetlands

September 14, 2019

On The way to Lara Station we had an overnight stop at Tambo. There are two caravan parks, neither of which was very flash, the folks chose the one on the edge of town. Both are on the main road. The one in the middle of town is just across the road from the pub […]

Big old Charleville

September 8, 2019

Heading west from the Sunshine Coast, Charleville was pretty much where we hit the red dirt that told us we were in the Queensland Outback. We’d passed through a lot of cattle country on the way. I got zapped by an electric fence at a campsite in Chinchilla. Our first tourist stop was Roma where […]

Enzo’s top five in dog friendly Peregian Beach

July 29, 2019

Peregian Beach is one of the most dog friendly places I have visited.  There is a great little village that is full of dog friendly eateries, and even a specialist pet shop, but of course, it is all about the beach. Without doubt this is one of the best dog beaches anywhere and an Enzo favourite. […]

A Dog’s Breakfast

June 30, 2019

‘Going to a dog’s breakfast this morning Enzo!’ said the Silverback, flashing his ‘I’ve just used words you’ve never heard before’ grin. I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about but didn’t let on. I got up casually and wandered over to the front door. Whatever it was, the lead was going on […]

Enzo meets ‘da Kat’

June 6, 2019

Change is afoot! It all started about two weeks ago when we had a visitor. I’d heard that Kat was coming and was initially concerned we may be getting a kitten and that I, as senior domestic animal, would be responsible for looking after the little, litter spreading darling. Luckily, I managed to dodge that bullet, […]

A Dog’s Gotta Work

May 3, 2019

Been feeling twitchy since we got home. The folks have been busy organising jobs around the house, they even had a sailmaker alter the big blue kennel to make it more storm proof for the round Australia loop later this year. Must admit, I’ve been a bit listless. Generations of breeding, back through my bloodlines, […]

Three good overnight spots on the Highway

April 25, 2019

After the doggie awesomeness of the Banana Shire, we were still slowly heading south. On the way we took a drive up Cania Gorge. It’s all national park. One of its two caravan parks is dog friendly and reportedly a good place to stay but it didn’t suit the folks this time. We already had […]

Enzo’s big day out in the Banana Shire

April 22, 2019

“We’re in the Banana Shire Enzo” the Sparrow said. I didn’t even have to lift my head and look out the window to know there were no bananas here.  This was cattle country! When it’s in your bloodlines you can sense it, even before you smell it! When they were no longer looking at me, […]

Two Great Dog Friendly Restaurants at Rockhampton and Yeppoon.

April 21, 2019

On the way from Agnes Water to Rockhampton the folks stopped for coffee and homemade date slice at Miriam Vale. A tiny little town with old weatherboard buildings and just a couple of shops but we noticed they had a free RV stopover site and an electric car charging point. They’re well set up for […]
