*** Update: Still no dog-friendly camping grounds on Bribie Island – If anyone knows of any, please update us ***
We often get asked whether dogs are allowed on Bribie Island and their beaches and what are the best pet-friendly camping grounds – so it’s time to do a post to help our readers out.
Firstly, YES, dogs, in general, are allowed on Bribie Island – even though it’s an island it is still home to residents, businesses and you guessed it, dogs! There are however certain beaches on Bribie Island where dogs can only go whilst on a leash. Off-leash beaches that DO ALLOW dogs exist on the surf side of the island from the Red Beach carpark around to Woody Bay and also from Woody Bay to the section of pathway at Benelong St.
Things to consider when on Bribie Island with your dog
- Dogs must be kept under effective control at all times.
- Owners are to clean up after their dogs and remove the dog waste.
- Be considerate of others using parks/beaches when exercising your dog.
- Dogs are prohibited from conservation parks, reserves, and foreshores unless designated as dog exercise areas.

Dog-Friendly Camping Grounds
Unfortunately, at the time of writing this post, there are no dog-friendly camping grounds on Bribie Island. Many campgrounds sit within the Bribie National Park at the northern end of the island, and dogs are not allowed. There are however more and more campgrounds along the coast allowing dogs and pets. There are several campgrounds in Noosa that have recently started allowing dogs on site, so check them out.
