Updated: Apr 7
A Fact Sheet for Dogs at Peregian Beach and Marcus beach.
The beach is to share and not everyone is a dog lover! Sea birds, turtles, crabs and other marine life also call our beaches home.
As looking after our physical and mental health is vital we have prepared this fact sheet to help make a walk on the beach a safe, relaxing and stress-free experience for all.
