Dog off-leash areas

Council provides a number of dog off-leash areas (PDF) along the foreshore across the Fraser Coast.

These areas provide the opportunity to play, exercise and socialise leash-free with other dogs and dog park visitors.

Dog off-leash areas can include facilities such as seating, water, dog waste bins/litter bag dispensers and some shaded areas.

Dog owners' obligations

When using dog parks, make sure your:

dog is under your control. (for example, your dog will return to you when called)
dog is not a nuisance to other dogs and their owners.
dog's droppings are disposed of in the bins provided.
dog is registered with Council, wormed regularly, and its vaccinations are up to date.
