‘Pet-friendly accommodation Noosa’, it’s one of the most popular searches for holidaymakers looking to bring their furry friend along on their family getaway! Luckily, we have a great selection of pet-friendly accommodation available along Noosa’s Eastern Beaches, ranging from family-affordable to luxury.
All of them are near a beach and all offer a secure environment for your pet. In general, there is a grassed area within the house’s boundary, or a courtyard of some design, to allow your pet to roam securely outside.
One of the most popular off-leash beach areas 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. Pet-friendly cafes in Sunshine Beach include The Deck on Duke Street in the main Village, and Fomo and Costa Noosa further up the hill.
(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. Stop off at pet-friendly Chalet & Co cafe for your coffee first. Parking is available.
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.
Around 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.
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.

Head to the Noosa Council website for a full list of local parks, both on- and off-leash, and suitable beach areas for dogs.
And don’t forget to check out the Surfing Dogs at the world-famous Noosa Surfing Festival, held in early March each year – it’s a highlight of the festival with the dogs stealing the show!
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!
