19 May 9 dog-friendly walks in Sydney
If you haven’t noticed, Sydney dogs have it pretty darn good when it comes to beaches, parks, cafes and even walks. We’ve covered some of the best parts of Sydney for dogs and their loving humans on our blog – and in the Baxta app. Avoid the crowds with this locals list!
Cremorne Point Walk
Who doesn’t love a good view? Cremorne Point is a favourite among Sydney-siders because it brings equal amounts of joy to the animals and the humans. Pack some cheese and a blanket and pull up a few stumps, and enjoy uninterrupted views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. There are also outlooks over Mosman Bay, the city skyline and a heap of dogs trotting the path. Make sure you stop off at Sophie’s Place at the Cremorne Wharf for a hot cuppa.
Bidjigal Reserve: Burraga Loop Track
If your pup loves chasing his tale, he’s going to love this loop. Work your way over to the Bidjigal Reserve and mosey onto the Burraga Track. Heads up: this track will probably take you a few hours because it’s packed with nature and adventures.
Narrabeen Lagoon Bush Trail
This might be a little bit of a drive for some Sydney-siders but, honestly, it’s well worth it. There are some parts of this walk that are off-leash, but it’s best to keep your pup on the leash if possible – especially around the locals (aka, the ducks).
Clovelly To Maroubra
If you’re a fan of the water, you’ll be a fan of this walk. Get started at the Waverley Cemetery and wind your way past the eastern gems of Bronte, Gordon’s Bay, Clovelly and Coogee. There are also a few off-leash areas on this walk, so take a break and play a little throw and catch with your furry friend.
Leash: Yes, with off-leash spots
Wingello State Forest
Wingello State Forest
If there was ever a time to trust us, it’s now. You’ll love this walk. There is a big selection of tracks where you can immerse yourself in nature. Added bonus: you don’t need to leash your dog up.
Distance: Various tracks
Abraham Bosom Track
Looking for views and adventure rolled into one blissful location? This is the trek for you. With panoramic ocean glimpses and a dog-friendly walk down to the wreck of S.S. Merimbula, your pup can even have a blast with small sections of off-leash fun.
Two Creeks Track
This walk is full of gullies, rocky waterfalls and plenty of sniffing. You can fully immerse yourself in nature and switch off while your doggo has the time of their life.
Distance: 6.1km one way
Bomaderry Creek Gorge
It’s a creek, a gorge, a canyon AND a swamp. The ideal pooch/person adventure? Pretty much. This dog-friendly walk includes patches of rainforest, dry woodland and gum, and has a couple of caves to explore too. Tip: Bring a few snacks with you and set up a puppy picnic in the grassed areas.
Lake Parramatta: Banksia Track
This trail is rugged and super fun. Start on the Shee-Oak track to get to this path. Keep an eye out for the cute creek crossing. On this track, you’re following the lake the whole way, so there’s still a beautiful view around most bends in the track.
