Take your dog

Taking your dog to the beach can be a fun experience for both you and your pooch. It can run around on the sand, explore rock pools, frolic in the water or even join you for a swim.

Some beaches in Victoria have no restrictions when it comes to dogs, permitting them to enjoy the beach without being on a lead. Others may permit dogs only if on a lead, while others may prohibit dogs completely. These restrictions may also change depending on the time of day or the season. Take careful note of any relevant signage at the beach.

For more information about dogs on beaches, refer to the dog friendly beaches section on the Dogs On Holidays website.
