Dogs in public places

Going walkies

The extensive network of walking trails and open spaces along the Barwon River through Geelong are fantastic for dog walking.

However in such exciting and stimulating surrounds, our furry friends can become unruly. That’s why Corangamite CMA has a “dogs on leads” policy along the Barwon River through Geelong, from Queens Park Bridge to the lower breakwater.

We ask that dog owners show courtesy to other trail users by keeping their dogs securely restrained. Corangamite CMA in partnership with the City of Greater Geelong carries out regular checks to ensure compliance, and penalties can apply.
