Shelly Beach provides an ideal location for hosting your event. This area is at the base of the Caloundra Headland and provides many large rock pools at low tide. The Des Dwyer Walkway connects the two headlands through the Caloundra Headland Foreshore Reserve. Dogs are allowed off leash north of Russell Street (Beach Access point 276) from 4pm to 8am. The remainder of the beach is off leash between 4pm and 8am from 1st May to 31st October only.

Other useful information

We’ve created a handy interactive map to help you identify the dog off-leash, on-leash and prohibited areas when you’re out and about across the Sunshine Coast local government region.

We’ve also included locations for dog water bowls so you can keep your pet hydrated. 

Be a responsible pet owner: Please note that it’s your responsibility to have doggie bags with you at all times when taking your dog for a walk in public. Please don’t rely on the doggie bag dispensers as they are in high demand and may need restocking, so don’t get caught out.

For general information visit Council's 'Dog parks and off-leash areas' page.
