Tuckeroo Park is one of the best places around Brisbane to take your dog for an exercise. Your dog will have access to agility equipment, large green area as well as the beach to run that stored energy out.

After you pooch is done with all the running and playing it’s time to go for a relaxing pint of craft beer. All Inn Brewing Company is located no further than 10 minutes in the car (most likely on your way home anyway), which makes it a perfect after play location.

Remy’s with it’s neighbouring dog friendly eateries, Sassafraz and Atticus Finch are all great places to visit before you head to the Sunset Park. Remy’s is open until later in the evening and is therefore well suited for an after play drink as well.

FROM Victoria Park TO Welcome to Bowen Hills

Distance: 15 minutes walk

Victoria Park off leash dog area is suitable for pups of all shapes and sizes. It has an agility course and fenced areas separately for smaller dogs who aren’t quite ready to brave it in the rough and tumble world of puppy play dates.

The entire laneway of the popular Welcome to Bowen Hills is dog friendly and they strongly encourage everyone to bring their furrier family members as well.


FROM Waterfront Park TO The Defiant Duck

Distance: 5 minutes walk

Council is trialling an off leash area at the Waterfront Park. It may not be the largest off leash area but it is a great way to finish the waterfront walk with your pooch to the Newstead House and back.
