Maps for dog walking areas
Below are maps that detail areas where on-leash and off-leash restrictions apply when walking your dog in the Far North. These areas include popular beaches, special character beaches, parks and reserves. If on-leash or off-leash restrictions apply in an area, the map will include the dates these restrictions apply.
These restrictions are designed to ensure safety around dogs and protect sea birds when nesting and other wildlife.
The source document for these maps is the Dog Management Policy 2018 (from page 20 onwards). You can view this document here.
If an area is not listed below then no restrictions currently apply, however dogs must be on a lead and under control on all public roads, footpaths, car parks etc.
