Two locations to walk your dog

Dog walking is permitted in two locations

There are two locations on Worimi Conservation Lands where dogs are permitted:

  • on the Gan Gan Road access into the park, and
  • on a 3-kilometre section of beachfront south from the boundary with Birubi Point Crown Reserve at the north-eastern end of the WCL.

Dogs must be kept on a leash and kept under control at all times in both locations. Dog owners must clean up and remove their dogs’ faeces from the park.

Dogs are not permitted in any other area of the park, including in cars travelling on the beachfront or the recreational vehicle area.

Uncontrolled dogs pose a threat to fauna, especially shorebirds, including the threatened little tern and pied oystercatcher which nest in the park. They can also be problematic for vehicles on the beachfront, especially during peak holiday periods, and also potentially for horse riders.
