Australia is lucky to have many public parks and beaches where you and your four legged friend can have some fun. Taking your dog out to the park can provide them with some great exercise and some wholesome fun!


  • It is important to note which areas of the park/ beach are designated to off-lead and which are on-lead only.
  • Have waste disposal bags handy at all times.
  • Even when your dog is off-lead, you must always supervise them.
  • Don’t let your dog run up to /jump on other people.
