Perth has got the best beaches in the world – but which ones allow you to take your dog for a swim?

We’ve tracked down a few beaches around town where dogs are allowed off-leash. But remember to always pay attention to any local signage and restrictions, because things can change from year to year.

Whitfords Dog Beach - Hillarys 

Dogs are able to exercise off-leash in the current horse beach exercise area after midday, Monday - Saturday and all day Sunday. Dogs may not enter the beach via the Whitfords Nodes South Car Park beach access path or the northern Hillarys Marina groyne. However, they may be walked on-leash along the dual-use pathway to the designated dog beach area.

Dogs are allowed on part of Quinns Rocks Beach, north from Tapping Way.


Yanchep Beach
