Perth’s Dog Friendly Beaches Where Your Pup Can Run Free

Tags: dog, Perth

Perth’s got the best beaches in the world – but which ones allow you to take your dog for a swim?

We’ve tracked down a few beaches around Perth where dogs are allowed off-leash. But remember to always pay attention to any local signage and restrictions, because things can change from year to year.

Whitfords Dog Beach - Hillarys 

The dog beach has been extended south through the installation of new signage. Dogs are also able to exercise off-leash in the current horse beach exercise area after midday Monday - Saturday and all day Sunday.  Dogs may not enter the beach via the Whitford Nodes South Car Park beach access path or the northern Hillarys Marina groyne. However, they may be walked on-leash along the dual-use pathway to the designated dog beach area.  

Quinns Rocks Beach

Dogs are allowed on part of Quinns Rocks Beach, north from Tapping Way.

Yanchep Beach

South from the northern end of Compass Park is a dog friendly zone.
