Sun's Out, Tongues Out
Summer is soon coming to an end, and Easter is around the corner!
Also if you are going away this Easter, don't forget to book a stay-cation for your fur babies as well. Keep a look out for pet sitters with the Easter Badge (as shown below), which means they are available from 25th - 28th March.
Be sure to catch the last leg of this amazingly sunny weather by hitting the beach with your furry friends! Remember to watch out for swells and rips, and follow lifeguard instructions to have a fun and safe time.
See if your local beach is on the list of the best dog beaches across Australia:
Byron Bay, NSW
Think powder white sand that stretches endlessly into the distance, and crystal clear waters; basically heaven for you and your pup! This magnificent, 7-kilometre beach on the southern side of the headland stretches all the way to Broken Head Reserve, which makes for fantastic running ground for your pooch. If you are in Byron Bay, you MUST check out Tallow Beach.
The beach's designated dog-friendly area starts near Jarman Street in Suffolk Park and extends north to the boundary of the Arakwal National Park.
St Kilda Beach
This iconic Melbourne beach is a must go in Melbourne. St Kilda’s wide sandy beach and boardwalk is always buzzing with activity from cyclists, rollerbladers, and dog walkers. It’s grassed park area is also a great place for you pup to run free.
Dogs are only allowed between Brooks Jetty and the northern end of the car park towards St Kilda Marina.
Sunshine Beach welcomes dogs with open paws and is only a 10 minute drive from Noosa! This beach is a paradise for anyone who loves surfing, boating, fishing, or just relaxing on the beach with family and friends. Everyone, including your pup, is sure to enjoy this laid back, long white surf beach.
Dogs can freely explore the shoreline from Noosa National Park to the path leading from the public toilet block and car park in Seaview Terrace.
Peasholm Dog Beach
South Scarborough, Perth, WA
This spacious, sparkly-white sandy beach is perfect for you and your furry best friend to walk along Perth’s famous Sunshine Coast. Don’t forget to bring a frisbee or a ball so you guys can play catch as well!
The beach, which is mainly located in the Town of Cambridge, begins 200m to the north of Peasholm Street and extends for 1.5km southwards.
Coles Bay, TAS
Just 1 km from Tassie's spectacular Freycinet National Park, this beautiful, unspoilt patch of sand is located on the western side of the Coles Bay. In contrast to famous sheltered beaches of Freycinet, it is more open to the swell from the Tasman Sea, making it ideal for boogie boarding and windsurfing. The beach itself is very long, so there is plenty of space to let your pup run free.
Dog owners must respect the environment and use the poop bags supplied at the entrance to the beach to dispose of any doggie doodoos. Fines apply. But of course you'd never litter, right?
Robe’s Long Beach is one of the best dog-friendly beaches in South Australia. It is located on the northern side of the popular seaside resort town. The 17km strip of sand offers safe swimming, snorkelling and surfing and is one of the few beaches where you can take your four-wheel drive.
No restrictions that we know of. It's perfect!
