Dogs on beaches and exercise areas

There are a few rules in place to make sure that dogs can be responsibly exercised on Eurobodalla beaches. Most areas are on a 'time-share' basis between those with dogs and those who would rather be on the beach without dogs, however some very popular swimming beaches prohibit dogs.A dog on the beach

We recognise the important role companion animals play in our society and as such there are:

  • Time share and 24 hour off-leash exercise areas
  • Time share and 24 hour leashed exercise areas
  • Prohibited areas

Time share arrangements mean that from 1 November to 30 April access is available between 5pm and 9am and from 1 May to 31 October access is available on a 24 hour basis.

Dogs must be leashed to exercise areas. Animals must always be under the care and control of a competent person.

You can download the full details of where you can exercise your dogs below.
