Dog Friendly Beaches

Walking with your four-legged best friend on the beach is fabulous!

Whether you’re visiting the Mornington Peninsula for a day visit or are staying at dog friendly accommodation, you will need to know where you can and can’t walk your dog.

With the summer holidays approaching, there are more restrictions to be aware of.

The Mornington Peninsula Shire has produced a guide to help you work out where you can have the most fun with your dog.

Here’s our top tips for where we love walking our dog:

  • On leash dog walking permitted from 1st December until the end of February on the Rye and Blairgowrie front beach between 7pm and 10 am.
  • Off leash dog walking permitted all year around from Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron towards Sorrento.
  • If in doubt, check the signage – shire rangers do patrol and often in ‘plain clothes’.
  • Always take a plastic bag to clean up after your dog – failure to clean up results in an on the spot fine of over $100.
