Declared areas have been agreed to by Council and other public land managers throughout the municipality. The maps below show the locations where dogs are allowed off lead, on lead or are prohibited at different times throughout the year for the various places. Responsible dog management will ensure that these areas are enjoyed by everyone.
In certain public areas your dog must be on a lead at all times these include Pedestrian Walking Tracks, Roads, Footpaths and Cycleways.
Unfortunately, non compliance will lead to infringements being issued which is not our desired outcome.
Our fenced dog exercise areas are a designated public area that’s been set aside for dog owners to legally exercise, play and socialise with their dog’s off-leash in a secure environment.
The area is fully enclosed and fenced. Dog owners are required to pick up their dog’s faeces at all times.
Current Dog Exercise Areas within Glamorgan Spring Bay Municipality are:
Buckland Buckland Cricket Ground, East Street
Orford Orford Recreation Ground, Rheban Road
Swansea The Esplanade, Waterloo point
Swanwick Swanwick Recreation Ground, Kunzea Circuit
Triabunna Recreation Ground, Melbourne Street
The Wildlife Management Branch of DPIPWE manage the Injured and Orphaned native wildlife program.
If you are aware of any injured or orphaned native wildlife please contact the team on (03) 6165 4305 during or after hours.
Additionally Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary operate a Rescue Line, which can be contacted on 0447 264 625. More details are available at https://www.bonorong.com.au/wildlife-rescue-service/
If there is an animal that appears to be seriously injured or compromised, it is appropriate to seek urgent medical attention from the nearest Veterinary practice that will accept wildlife (some do not). In these circumstances, it may mean that the animal is euthanised to prevent further pain and suffering.
In the event you have any visiting snakes requiring removal and relocation please phone:
