  • 09 Aug 2017

You can search for a dog off-leash area in council's Facilities and Recreation Directory or refer to the table below. The directory lists parks and other outdoor facilities on Sunshine Coast.

Please note: sports fields are not dog off-leash areas. Outside of training and competition times dogs are generally allowed on sports fields while on a leash, however local clubs have the right to ban dogs from their sports fields so make sure you check the signage or fines may apply.

*The times are indicative only. Always check signage before allowing your dog off leash. If there is no sign your dog must be on lead at all times. Refer to map[460KB].
