Places prohibited to dogs

Dogs are prohibited in a number of public places in Redland Coast known as animal control areas.

Owners found with their dogs in a place they are prohibited from may receive an on-the-spot fine under Council’s Local Law No.2 (Animal Management) 2015.

This could be up to 20 penalty units if they fail to effectively control their dog and it causes fear, attacks another animal or a person, or causes damage to property. Fines of more than $2,700 could apply.

Below is a list of places on Redlands Coast prohibited to dogs (you can also see refer to Local Law No.2 (Animal Management) 2015.)
