Dog friendly beaches across Australia

It's Summer! and the temperature is rising. The beach is beckoning but where can we take our dogs to cool down and have a play in the water. These listed beaches across Australia are known for being Dog Friendly. Happy Swimming and remember the sunscreen for both you and your charge.


  • Melbourne has it’s glorious Port Phillip Bay and fortunately the authorities are keen to promote all forms of dog exercise and provide a very useful downloadable map showing where a dog can be taken and any restrictions that may apply. This map can be found on this website –
  • Along the Surf Coast and including small towns such as Lorne and Anglesea, you find some a number of areas that carry some restrictions but, fortunately for such a popular part of the Victorian coast, most areas provide some very decent off-leash areas for dogs and you can download a map and brochure from this website –
  • Warrnambool is a popular coastal town that benefits from its close proximity to the Great Ocean Road. Many visitors come for the fishing as well as the very popular Whale spotting from Logans Beach – fortunately, this beach also provides off-leash dog walking. Details of this area and other on and off-leash zones can be found on this website –


  • In 2010, Wollongong Council put in place a Dogs on Beaches and Parks policy where they have put together coloured zones that indicate the type of access from off-leash at all hours, to limited off-leash  hours and then onto totally prohibited. This website will show you those beaches, from total access at Little Austinmer to limited hours access at Sandon Point, across this beautiful coastline that offer the best places to take your dog –
  • Sydney – According to Great Dog Walks, there is only one dog-friendly ocean beach in Sydney – Greenhills Beach north of  Wanda Beach near Cronulla.  But don’t give up hope as there are also other dog-friendly harbour beaches, bays and lagoons where you and your dog can enjoy mucking about in the water.

  • The seaport town of Port Augusta has wide estuary bays and beaches with most allowing access for dogs, although some with time-sharing restrictions. More details can be found with a link to a document from this website –


  • Over 700 miles to the east of Perth, you will find the Goldfields coastal town of Esperance where there is a positive approach to dog ownership with dog friendly access to the towns beaches with some time-sharing restrictions. Details can be found on the towns website –
  • A couple of hundred kilometres closer to Perth, there is the sea town of Bremers Bay, situated on the mouth of the Bremer River. It is known that the beaches here are classified as dog friendly, although the councils website doesn’t clarify the areas or any restrictions. Council contact details can be found on their website –
  • On the south west corner of Western Australia, there are glorious landscapes and beaches to explore and, luckily, the local communities and the Shire of Bussleton, are keen to promote dog exercise areas across the region. A list and a useful map can be found on this webpage ––parks.html


  • There are a number of beaches around Darwin but not many allow freedom of dog movement. One that does allow very decent dog (and horse!) exercise is Casuarina Beach. Like all open areas in the Northern Territory, it is important to check the local conditions and obtain current advice from government websites etc. Details of Casuarina Beach can be found here –


  • It is somewhat surprising that Tasmania, with its bountiful and beautiful National Parks, could provide so many opportunities, outside of these Parks, that give your dog the chance to run free. The attached website provides you with a list of many such areas where dogs have such freedom. Of course, please check out the details of the area that you wish to visit. The extremely helpful website is
