Sunday 20 November – Verona Sands: If coming from Huonville, drive south through Cygnet (turn left at roundabout) then drive south along the Channel Highway for about 14kms (keep going past the Randalls Bay turn-off) until you come to the sign for Verona Sands. Turn right into Doyle Avenue then right again into Lovering Ave, following the signs to the toilets. Park here, then go down to the beach and let the dogs off for a lovely play and swim.
Wednesday 7 December – Franklin Foreshore: Meet in the car park below Osteria @ Petty Sessions. Dogs must be on lead until we are past the Caravan Park. They can then go off lead until we reach the Wooden Boat Shed and once again there is the opportunity for a play and a swim before we return the same way
Saturday 17 December – Randalls Bay: If coming from Huonville drive through Cygnet (turn left at the roundabout) then drive south along the Channel Highway until you come to the turnoff to Randalls Bay. Drive down the hill and park near the barbecue area. Dogs must be on lead until we are past the barbecue area then they can be off lead for a nice run and a swim.
At the time of publication of the walks schedule, we are subject to the Tasmanian Government’s requirements regarding participation in group gatherings:

For more information, refer to
Off lead and under control ?
Several of our walks are ‘off-lead’ but please be aware that , under the Dog Act, it is the owners responsibility to keep their dog under control and in sight at all times. We love to see our dogs running free and playing together but sometimes there maybe a distraction or situation where your dog is not
responding to you as he/she normally would and needs to go back on the lead. You may need to put your dog on a lead if he or she:
·Has poor recall
· Has a habit of running off out of your sight
· Is aggressive or upsetting other dogs
· Is behaving in a way that endangers itself or others
· Any other situation where you feel that you don’t have control of your dog.
In addition to putting a dog on lead for the behaviours outlined, it is an owners prerogative to have their dog on lead during any of the walks if they feel it is in the best interest of the dog.
We hope this information helps you and your dog to have a fun and relaxing walk.
