Off Lead Dog Areas

The City engaged with the community in September 2019 on off-lead dog areas. During the consultation period, community members were encourage to provide feedback via the survey, ideas wall or leave a comment on the map.

This feedback helped to guide the City of Bunbury's review of existing parks and open spaces with relation to off-lead dog areas to support the City's social, economic, health and environmental values.

The City recognises that providing sufficient space for our furry friends to exercise and socialise is important to the community, providing social and well-being benefits for both dogs and their owners..

Dog Exercise Areas

The City has a number of approved dog exercise areas, where owners and their dogs can stretch their legs, throw a Frisbee and enjoy the sunshine. Of course, there are some areas where dogs are not allowed, in particular the Dolphin Discovery Centre beach (Koombana Bay), Jetty Baths and the Big Swamp.  

The City of Bunbury acknowledges the traditional owners of the land, the Wardandi Noongar people, and pays respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
