Take your pooch out West to enjoy an off leash run around in the sand, followed by a quick dip in the sea to cool off afterwards. This is a family favourite for those wanting to embrace the outdoors.
If your dog is a social butterfly, Meola Reef Reserve in Point Chevalier is the place for you. It is an off leash secure gated area, for your dogs to have a good romp. In the winter months it’s best to throw in your gummies, as the ground can become muddy under foot. There is the bonus of doggy bowls and a tap for your thirsty canines.
Le Roys Bush Walk
This is a hidden gem located right in the heart of Birkenhead which is easily accessible from Onewa Road or Maritime Terrace. This track takes approximately an hours walk and brings you out at Little Shoal Bay. The native tree cover provides lots of shade in the heat of summer.
