Active in Autumn: Dog Friendly Walks on the Sunshine Coast


With cooler weather just around the corner, autumn is a great time to get active. The Sunshine Coast offers stunning scenery and enjoyable walking areas for all ages, and going for a walk is even more enriching if you bring your dog as well! Here are a few of the best dog friendly walks on the Sunshine Coast.

Point Cartwright Reserve, Buddina

This picturesque location offers something for every man and his dog, from sheltered waters to swim in to a scenic walk to the light house. A small beach is great for playing on while the park itself has great BBQ facilities, playground and even gym equipment on offer. With all this and more, Point Cartwright Reserve is a great place to spend the day.


Coolum Beach

The gorgeous beach at Coolum allows dog owners to let their pets roam free between the access points 67 and 72. Let your dog play in the surf while you walk along the beautiful white sand, and see why Coolum Beach is one of the most popular dog walking beaches on the Sunshine Coast. From the beach, it’s only a short walk into the centre of Coolum which is a great place to stop off for some lunch after the morning’s activities.



Make sure you check out the wonderful dog friendly walks in Caloundra. After you find a parking spot near Moffat Beach, take a stroll up Queen of Colonies road until you reach George Watson Park. Take some time to watch the huge ships comes close to the headland as they make their way to the Port of Brisbane, and if you’re lucky, you might spot some majestic humpback whales too.

From here, it’s a gentle walk down to the stunning setting of Kings Beach, where you can enjoy the amazing views towards Bribie Island. It’s a great place to rest and give your four legged friend some water in the park before heading back up to the car.


Buderim Dog Park

This great dog park is a favourite amongst the locals of nearby Sunshine Cove. Plenty of puppies, dogs and senior pooches congregate in this fully fenced park to socialise and play while their owners can all catch up for a good chat in the covered gazebo on site. If you have a small dog that might be overwhelmed by larger play friends, there is a separate fenced area just for the littler canines.


Getting out and about with your four legged friend is a fantastic way to get active this autumn. With such amazing surroundings, the Sunshine Coast provides the perfect lifestyle for anyone who wants to spend time with their pets. Check out these great dog friendly walks that you and your pet will love.
