There is nothing better than a weekend activity that you can enjoy with your furry friend in tow. With the weather warming up, a great way to spend an afternoon is at the beach with Fido by your side. Here are some of the best dog-friendly beaches in South-East Queensland that both you and your pup will love.
Stumers Creek, Coolum
Whether you are based on the Sunshine Coast or not, Stumers Creek in Coolum is worth the drive. Stumers Creek is an off-leash beach, with a lagoon your pooch can play in. The still water makes the perfect place for dogs of all sizes to swim in, with open space for your dog to run and around and dry off. One of the best parts of Stumers Creek is the special doggy-shower on the way out because we can guarantee, your pup will need a rinse! Find Stumers Creek at the northern end of Coolum Beach, using access points 67 to 72.
Nudgee Beach, Brisbane
Not so far from the City, is Nudgee Beach – a great spot for an afternoon walk that does not require you to travel too far. When the tide is out, there is plenty for your pooch to explore. When you are done at the beach, there is a dog park next door, where you can let your dog run wild to dry off and socialise. Find the dog-friendly portion of the beach on the right on your way into Nudgee, just past the entrance to the Boondall Wetlands.
Doggy Beach, Noosa Heads
Like the name suggests, Doggy Beach in Noosa Heads is a heaven for your four-legged friend! This beautiful off-leash beach is fantastic for dogs at low-tide. Find Doggy Beach in the Noosa Woods, off the Spit end of Hastings Street.
Currumbin Beach is a fantastic spot for Gold Coast pups to have a swim. It is great for dogs of all sizes because smaller pooches can hop in the calm waters of the Currumbin Creek inlet and bigger ones can have a paddle in the surf. It can be very busy on the weekends, so our tip is to go in the morning!
Currimundi Dog Beach
Did you know that Currimundi Beach is dog-friendly between entrances 60 to 62? The one kilometre stretch between these two entrances is paradise for the beach-loving pup. At Currimundi Beach, dogs can swim in both the surf and in lagoons on the shore, make friends and run free.
