Hillarys Dog Beach

The beach has it all. From public toilets, change rooms, barbeques, picnic areas, lots of parking and of course the big blue for your little boo.

Parks:

Whiteman Park Dog Park

The 2.5 hectare off-leash dog park will have your dog begging you to never leave. The fenced area includes an obstacle course designed specifically in dog colours for your wet-nosed friend to enjoy. There are water stations, shade areas and a walking path within the enclosure. No need to fret, if your pooch is too small to play with the big boys, there’s a separate and smaller area. Biodegradable ‘pooch pouches’ are free at the dog park or Visitor Information Centre.

Where: 99 Lord St, Whiteman

Jack Marks Reserve

The fenced off park allows your dog to run around in the grassy or take a nap under the trees. Their preference. With water fountains for humans and dogs to enjoy fresh water from, everything else will flow. Alongside with park benches, the reserve can be booked out. Fees apply.

Where: Wright St, Highgate

Pubs:

The Monk Brewery & Kitchen

What’s more heavenly than cuddling your pooch and enjoying a taste paddle of beers? You’ll be the saint in the room when you bring your dog along to The Monk Brewery & Kitchen. With a menu inspired by flavours from around the world and the amazing local fresh produce. Good food, good beer and a good boy.

Where: 33 South Terrace, Fremantle

Little Creatures

Don’t be discouraged by the large factory like setting, Little Creatures is in fact a Brewhouse. Patrons can walk through The Great Hall enjoying their local brew with some snacks. What used to be a crocodile farm, the location offers a great outdoor area for your pooch. The only creature roaming around will be your pup. No crocodiles allowed!

Where: 40 Mews Rd, Fremantle
