Dog friendly areas

We have many dog-friendly areas where you can exercise your dog off-leash and on leash. These include dedicated dog parks and dog friendly beaches. 

Use the map below to see where you can and can't take your dog.  

When you are out and about with your dog, please remember your responsibilities:  

  • Keep your dog on their leash unless you are in an off-leash area 
  • Always supervise your dog and keep it under your control at all times 
  • Please pick up your dog’s poo in the interests of health and safety 
  • Don’t bring your dog within 10 metres of a children’s playground
