Palm Beach off-leash dog Beach
The existing Palm Beach off-leash dog exercise area has been extended along Currumbin estuary. However, dogs are not allowed in the children’s playground and grassed picnic and events area. The area is well signed and will help guide you find where you need to go. Follow the path with the blue paw prints and keep dogs on a leash until you reach the designated off-leash sections, which is located at the South of the Lifeguard Tower 13 to Currumbin Creek entrance. Dogs are permitted at both the surf beach and the lagoon.
