Ocean Grove dog friendly beaches
Dogs on beaches at Ocean Grove:
- Dogs are permitted off-lead at all times on the beach between Hodgson Street (13W) and Aldebaran Road (8W)
- Dogs are prohibited at all times from the main beach between markers 13W and 15W
- Dogs are permitted off-lead and on-lead at various times of the year on other beaches - see the map below
"Off leash under effective control" means your dog is close to you at all times, is trained to come back to you when called, does not run up to other people or dogs and you must prevent your dog from approaching wildlife. Occasionally there may be small temporary dog exclusion zones on some beaches due to highly threatened bird species breeding there.
Official sources for dog restrictions
When bringing your dog to the beach, refer to signs at beach entry points and consult the official sources for the latest information. Changes to dog restrictions may be made at any time by local authorities.
