DOGS ON BEACHES
The Eurobodalla council has rules in place to ensure dogs can be responsibly exercised on beaches.
Most areas are available on a “time-share” basis between those with dogs and those who would rather be on the beach without dogs.
Unfortunately, there are some very popular swimming beaches where dogs are prohibited.
Please note that timeshare arrangements mean that from 1 November to 30 April access is available between 5 pm and 9 am and from 1 May to 31 October access is available on a 24-hour basis.
