Dog exercise areas Byron Shire, Gold Coast City Council and Tweed Shire

If you're visiting our region with your four pawed friends, please clean up droppings, respect local regulations, and keep your dog on leash where required, especially on beaches and in dune areas where migrating shore birds maybe nesting. In rural areas, please don't allow your dog to disturb livestock or chase wildlife.

These areas are not for the exclusive use of dogs and their owners.
