Dogs have always been a big part of the fabric of Merricks Beach. As more dog owners head to our beach, it is important to lead by example and remember the rules that apply during daylight saving hours:
- Dogs are not permitted on the beach between 9am and 7pm
- Leashed dogs may be exercised on the beach before 9am and after 7pm
- For off-leash exercise, there is a leash-free area at Hanns Creek Reserve, near the end of Merricks Beach Road
We are grateful that most residents are responsible dog owners who are mindful of others’ enjoyment at Merricks Beach and manage their dogs in line with the rules.
