Dogs on/off Leash

Under the provisions of section 26 of the Domestic Animals Act 1994, Moira Shire Council provide a number of off leash areas to exercise your dogs.

Dogs can be exercised off a leash at the Showgrounds in Cobram, Nathalia, Numurkah and Yarrawonga and the football ground at Tungamah in the presence of the owner during daylight hours only. This clause does not apply when an organised sporting event or similar activity is in progress, thereby allowing the presence of a dog on a leash only.

Dogs are prohibited in the following areas:
        • School grounds throughout the municipality;
        • Municipal swimming pools and surrounds;
        • Yarrawonga foreshore between Hunt Street/Bank Street and the waters edge;
            and
        • Thompson’s Beach, Cobram (area under the care and management of Council).

Dogs are permitted to be present in all other municipal places and public places only while fully constrained on a leash.

In addition, dogs are not permitted near or in playground areas, these are signed.

Dog owners must carry bags and clean up after their dogs.
