Dogs now permitted at Hinze Dam on the Gold Coast

GOLD Coast dog lovers can now include their beloved pets on trips to Hinze Dam.

Seqwater Chief Executive Officer Peter Dennis said dogs on leashes are now permitted at Picnic Parkland and Pocket Park.

“Dogs on leashes are now permitted permanently in these two parks, as well as on the pathway from Picnic Parkland to the upper car park. This will enable visitors to enjoy time outdoors with their canine friends,” he said.


“Dogs will not be allowed in all areas at Hinze Dam. The dam wall, Visitor Centre, Waterside Park and the trail network around the dam will remain off-limit to dogs.”

Mr Dennis reminded dog owners to play it safe while at the dam and ensure they control their pets at all times to ensure public safety and an enjoyable visit for everyone.

“Dogs must be leashed and we ask pet owners to collected and dispose of any waste in the bins provided,” he said.

“It’s important to note that dogs are not permitted to enter the lake due to potential impacts on drinking water quality.”
