One of the best dog off leash beaches on the Sunshine Coast would have to be that of Sunshine Beach, the picturesque seaside hamlet nestled to the south of Noosa National Park.
A secluded piece of dog paradise lies to the north and south of Lake Currimundi, albeit one that is off leash between 4pm and 8am.
In a picturesque rural setting less than an hour from Brisbane is this exclusive gem of a camp site where dogs are free to roam, camp fires rule and prices are rock bottom.
There can be few better ways to spend a night out with family or friends than under the stars at the drive-in. And next to a field just off the Pacific Highway lies this time capsule of the 1950’s, where on weekend nights just like their parents once did, kids in pyjamas line up next to Marilyn Monroe & James Dean in the kiosk for candy, hot dogs and ice-creams.
Decker Park is one of those rare all-in-one parks that suit just about everyone.
Aquatic Paradise is a unique non-enclosed sea front expanse for dogs.
Another doggy gem in an out of the way place - this is one of Brisbane's largest off-leash areas (4 hectares), dotted with shady trees and the odd picnic shelter.
This small but lovely treed dog park, complete with benches for owners and water for dogs is tucked away on the cusp of Grange Forest.
The only dog off leash area with sweeping city and district views, this unfenced reserve is dominated by the gargantuan fortress-like hulk of the 1968 built reservoir.
Make no bones about it, this has to be the most carefree dog off-leash area in Brisbane.
The only off leash dog park on the Redcliffe Peninsula more than compensates with its sprawling size.
Urban dogs and their owners love this one – a lovely oval of space flanked by the Powerhouse, the river and Cutters landing boardwalk.
One of the largest fenced spaces in the west, coupled with the scenic forested backdrop of Enoggera Hill makes this is a park worth travelling a bit further for.
It may be a hike from the CBD but it’s hard to top this Taj Mahal of dog parks when it comes to space, nature and amenities.
A large, hilly and at times windy expanse at the far end of Victoria Park, this off leash area is tucked behind the retro Centenary Pool complex.
This fantastic stretch of surf beach is but part of the entire dog friendly southern coastline of Bribie Island.
