Dog Friendly: Horseshoe Bay & Redhead Beach Newcastle

Being located just north of Sydney means Newcastle’s makes for a perfect weekend escape. While you are there, don’t forget to visit some of Australia’s best vineyards in the Hunter valley, Barrington Tops, and Lake Macquarie.



Horseshoe Bay

This is Newcastle’s only official off-leash beach and is located at Nobby’s Road, Newcastle East. Horseshoe Beach is a great place for dogs to enjoy a splash in the ocean without the restriction of a leash. Located in Newcastle Harbour, the sheltered waters of Horseshoe Beach are ideal for dogs to play in.

Redhead Beach

This beach is located around 16.5km south of Newcastle. The off-leash dog area extends from Second Creek, southerly for approx 700 metres.


Absolutely 100% favourite spot for Bodhi is redhead beach, Newcastle. It stretches for 9 miles and is largely dog-friendly, we are blessed to live just ten minutes from it and visit regularly!
