Dogs - Off Leash Areas

Council has provided a number of off leash areas where dogs can exercise freely, play with their owners and socialise with other dogs.

While in an off leash area it is the owner's responsibility to ensure the dog is under effective control at all times. It is important that you monitor your dog’s behaviour and ensure it does not cause a nuisance or become aggressive to other people or dogs.  
  • All beaches before 8am and after 4pm daily unless otherwise signposted. At all other times your dog must be on a leash. 
  • Farnborough Beach, Yeppoon from Bangalee boat ramp south to Barwells Creek with access via Hinz Avenue excluding weekends and public holidays.  
  • Fisherman's Beach, Emu Park from the beach access 150 metres north of Bell Park to Tanby Point with access via Hill Street excluding weekends and public holidays.
