Council Rules

All dogs must be kept on a leash when in public areas, unless in a designated off-leash area where they may be exercised without restraint.

The following rules apply when using off-leash areas on the Sunshine Coast:

  • Dogs must be within close proximity of the owner and be responsive to their commands.
  • Dogs must not interfere with any other recreational users.
  • Declared dangerous dogs are prohibited in off-leash areas.
  • Dog faeces must be removed and disposed of properly.
  • Dogs are not allowed within children’s playground areas or picnic/barbeque areas.

Council has also specified certain areas where all dogs are prohibited due to the sensitivity of the area.
