Pet Friendly Beaches in Noosa

pet friendly beach Noosa

There are a number of great, pet friendly beaches to explore across Noosa, Sunshine Beach, and the Eastern Beaches. 

Sunshine Beach


One of the most popular pet friendly beaches is the off-leash beach areas which can be accessed at the Northern end of Sunshine Beach (use Beach Access Point 27 on Seaview Terrace). Parking is available here but our Sunshine Beach pet-friendly accommodation is all within a 5-15 minute walk from Seaview Terrace.

Sunrise Beach


Beach Access Point 38 offers a much larger off-leach beach area, from the Southern end of Tingira Place all the way down to and past Castaways Beach. This area is also popular with kite surfers and surfers but is not patrolled.

Popular on-leash areas include Rainbow Park in Sunrise Beach, which also features a children’s playground. The path from here connects to the coastal walking/bike path between Sunshine Beach and the beaches to the South, making a good length walk for the whole family.

Hastings Street​


The Dog Beach on the Noosa Spit, accessed via Claude Batten Drive in the Noosa Woods at the Western end of Hastings Street, offers calmer waters to the Eastern surf beaches. This is a lovely place for dogs and their family to cool off on a hot day. There is plenty of parking in the Noosa Woods or you can access the area on foot.

There are also a number of off-leash grassy park areas in and around Noosa.

Noosa Heads


Alec Dan Park on Cooyar Street is very popular with 4-legged friends. There is also a small children’s playpark here so everyone will be kept happy! Parking is available.



Lake Weyba 


Creek Road Park on Lake Weyba’s foreshore is another lovely place for enjoying a picnic and a swim, fish or kayak in the shallow Lake. There is lots of shade and grass so it’s a great place for dogs, and kids, to let off steam. There is parking available or the area can be accessed via the Eenie Creek walking/bike path.

Peregian Beach

Peregian Beach also has a large on-leash beach area approved for dogs. There’s also  a children’s park next to the main beach access point in the Village that your furry friends can make use of. From access to 59 to 67. 

For more information


Head to the Noosa Council website for a full list of local parks, both on- and off-leash, and suitable beach areas for dogs.

Dogs must always be under control whether on or off the leash and owners are responsible for the behaviour of their dog. Of course, dog owners must always carry a poop bag with them and clean up after their dogs or face hefty fines!
