Dogs on beaches

Council understand dogs and their owners appreciate beachside recreation but there are a few simple rules that need to be observed to protect the environmental aspects of our beautiful beaches and ensure all beach users have a safe and enjoyable experience.  

1. Check the beach isn’t a “dogs prohibited” beach

2. Keep your dog on a leash at all times (unless in a designated off leash area)

3. Clean up after your dog

Council officers regularly patrol local beaches and are available to answer questions relating to dogs and their access to beaches.
