Bright Pups light up dog collars, high visibility clothes

Here is a handy guide to most of the beaches around Melbourne for taking your dogs. We've collected, investigated and worked with a number of the local councils to try and bring the most comprehensive and up to date dog friendly and restricted beaches, we hope you find it handy :)

If so we'd love for you to embed the google map into your own site or share this page with your friends!

If you have any comments or suggestions for improving the map, feel free to contact us at

Curious what its like to visit some of the beaches on the map? Have a look at the beach reports, accessed from menu at the top of the page! Photos of some of the beaches so you have an idea of what its like to visit :)

Mobile users, be aware if opening in Google Maps app, only a limited amount of data can be shown at a time, so you'll need to turn areas on and off.

If using a mobile browser, details of each beach can be displayed by clicking on the area, and then the name box that appears to give details on time restrictions.

Due to Safari and some iOS applications not being able to function correctly with detailed Google Maps integrated on websites, the map now needs to be opened in a separate tab
