Dog Beaches on the Sunshine Coast

Looking for a great day out at the beach, but want to take your four-legged friend along to?  Lucky for you, the Sunshine Coast has a wealth of beautiful off-leash beaches to choose from.

We’ve pulled together a list of dog beaches where your pooch is allowed to explore without a leash.

Just remember to pick up after your furry friend and put the leash back on as you leave the beach to avoid any unfortunate surprises underfoot or to your hip-pocket if a council officer is nearby.

(Note: These areas are subject to council rules and regulations and can change. Check for signs, if there is no sign your dog must be on a lead at all times.)

Deborah Crompton says ~ Surf Club House
Gary and I just spent the most wonderful 10 days in the Surf Club House with our standard poodle and up to 3 other some visitors at one time and there was plenty of room for us all. The house and studio were very clean and had everything we needed for our stay plus some things that make self catering really easy but are often not on hand like plenty of dish washing liquid, cling wrap, alfoil, salt and pepper, etc. Also some games and books in the cupboard (I traded a book I brought with me and finished for one I found in the cupboard) and plenty of indoor and outdoor areas to relax together or in your own little corner. We even had a dip in the heated pool. Although pet friendly THERE ARE NO PET SMELLS OR HAIR TO BE SEEN! The beach is only a block away and the dog beach is a great 20 minute walk away so easy to keep the dog exercised and happy. The local coffee shops and general store are handy and serve good food plus the twilight markets on Friday night were only a block away – perfect for grabbing some great food to take home and eat in comfort. We had an absolutely great time and will go back whenever we can.

Julie says ~ Surf Club House

Hi Alison, I have told so many friends and they were amazed that we got this beautiful little cottage with a pool right near the beach and on top of it all the best part was our dog could stay. We were delighted with all the little thoughts for welcoming not only guests but dogs, like the dog bowls and dog bed we even found a toy.Thanks for a great stay.


Pavla smith says: Our stay at the Surf Club House at Marcoola was truly great. Everything was perfect, location to the beach, using the house bicycles on the nearby trail leading to Coolum Beach, the ping-pong was a hit with the four teenagers we had with us. The house is great and highly private. Our mature age Labrador Sheeba was so happy with the short walk to the beach and resting in the secure yard at other times. All in all, fantastic!
