Pets are welcome at most local parks, however please remember to keep your dog on a leash unless the reserve is classified as a 'dog off-leash area'.
Walking your dog keeps both you and your pet fit and healthy – in fact, dog owners are 68% more likely to get their recommended exercise than those without one!
In accordance with the
Companion Animals Act and the Local Government Area Act 1993, we have a number of parks where dogs can run around off-leash.
As a pet owner, you have the following responsibilities:
The Companion Animals Act requires residents to have their dogs and cats microchipped, and pay the lifetime registration fee. Microchipping and registering your pet helps protect your pet if it's lost, hurt or stolen.
For all companion animal microchipping and registration details, including payment options, please refer to the Office of Local Governments website.

registering your pet.
