The Best Dog Beaches in Sydney

1. Silver Beach, Kurnell

Silver Beach Kurnell
Bring your furry friends down to Silver Beach for some dog beach frolicking.

For 24 hours a day, between the western end’s 3rd and 4th jetties called Bonna Point Reserve, dogs can be released from their leash and have a splash in the water that fronts Botany Bay.

Kurnell's dog beach is usually quiet and more populated by creatures of the four-legged rather than the two-legged kind!

Location: 312 Prince Charles Parade, Kurnell

3. Clifton Gardens, Mosman

Another welcoming dog beach in Mosman, families with furry friends should head to the dog beach east of the Clifton Gardens jetty for a run and play.

Dogs are permitted by the council to have off-leash time in winter before 9 am and after 4 pm, and during daylight savings (October-March) before 9 am and after 6 pm.

Location: Morella Rd, Mosman

4. Greenhills Beach

Greenhills Beach Cronulla dog friendly
With plenty of sand and waves to go crazy in, you're sure to find lots of other dogs enjoying the dog-friendly beach at Greenhills Beach.

If you're looking for a sandy spot near Cronulla to run and play with your pooch, you can't go past Greenhills Beach.

To get to Greenhills dog beach, head through the on-leash Wanda Reserve. The waves can get a little bumpy, but that definitely won’t stop your dog. They are permitted on the beach without a leash before 10 am and after 4 pm.

Location: Greenhills St, Kurnell

5. Flora and Ritchie Roberts Reserve, Curl Curl

Flora & Ritchie Roberts Reserve, Curl Curl
Flora And Ritchie Roberts Reserve is a dog-friendly beach in Sydney all day and all week long!

Dogs can run around the grassy dunes at Flora and Ritchie Roberts Reserve and cool down at Curl Curl Lagoon, but don’t take them to the nearby Curl Curl Beach as they are not allowed there.

Where the lagoon meets the sea isn’t the best quality water to swim in, meaning dogs will pretty much have full run of the dog beach here!

Location: 79 Carrington Parade, Curl Curl 

6. Dumaresq Reserve, Rose Bay

Dumaresqe Reserve, Rose Bay
Dumaresqe Reserve in Rose Bay offers both leashed and off-leash playtimes for your furry friends.

Dogs are allowed to be on a leash at all times at Dumaresq dog-friendly beach and completely off-leash from 4.30 pm to 8.30 am.

This spot is one of the best dog beaches in Sydney, with low and flat sand for easy access, plus it's easy on the eyes, so you are sure to both enjoy it!

Location: Dumaresq Rd, Rose Bay

Isabella Gales successfully petitioned to make Lady Robinson Beach in Kyeemagh an off-leash dog area.
