Did you know that the Northern Territory has over 50 national parks, reserves and conservation areas?
No doubt, the Northern Territory is perfect for those who love the outdoors. And a field trip to nature isn’t complete without your Cavoodle best friend!
Although most national reserves don’t allow pets, several smaller parks in the region are dog-friendly. If you are unsure about where you can take your pup, check out our list for the best dog parks in Northern Territory:
Breezes Muirhead Dog Park
With 3,000 m² of open space, Muirhead Park, in Darwin, is the perfect place for dog lovers. Pooches are free to walk off-leash in the large fenced areas, or train, exercise or practice agility in a dedicated area. The Muirhead is one of the best dog parks in the Northern Territory and the absolute favourite for those who live nearby.
Marlow Lagoon Pet Park
Created with dogs in mind, the Marlow Lagoon Pet Park will make your Cavoodle return home as tired as he can be! The park, open 24 hours a day, any day of the week, has 8 different obstacles that dogs can use to play or exercise, like stairs and planks. It’s a fun way for your dog to burn their unlimited stock of energy and sleep like a baby at night. Your Cavoodle will thank you later.
George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens
Unlike many botanic gardens, the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens welcomes dogs at any time. They are allowed to walk off-leash, as long as they behave, respect other visitors and are under control. This is an excellent place for a calm and quiet day with your Cavoodle, where you can enjoy peaceful trails and the shade of the trees on those hot sunny days.
Holmes Jungle Nature Park
This beautiful protected area in the Northern Territory is home for many species of birds, reptiles and mammals. With two small trails and some bike tracks, the Holmes Jungle Nature Park welcomes pet owners that want to enjoy nature with their pups. Dogs are allowed on leash only, and you must observe the rules in place. It is, however, without a doubt one of the most scenic places you and your Cavoodle will find. Make sure to spend a whole day exploring the park.
Casuarina Coastal Reserve
The Casuarina Reserve is a terrific option for a casual day with your Cavoodle. Most of the area is dog-friendly, and the reserve even allows off-leash walks in some parts. Just be aware that your pup must be under control the whole time to avoid disturbances. However, if you decide to go for a hike on one of their several trails, make sure your Cavoodle is on a lead. This is one of the rules the park enforces.
The Northern Territory is a must for nature lovers, and it gets even better in the company or your Cavoodle.
