For all our W.A. happy campers, and especially the ones who like to camp with their furry friends, please take note.
We had planned on spending a week at POTTER'S GORGE in the WELLINTON DAM reserve down near Collie shortly.
As is my wont, I decided to check out with DEC, to ensure things were OK, as my last recollection, furry animals were allowed, provided they were on a leash, it now turns out since MAY of this year, no dogs are allowed ANYWHERE within the Wellington reserve, that includes the water mark of the dam.
I was also advised they've undertaken a heavy feral animal programme with baiting for foxes and cats, so the place is crawling with yummy tasty baits for the unsuspecting dog.
Bit of a bugger for us, as we go everywhere with our furry mutts, and that reserve was the one remaining excellent place where you could go unhindered.
