Dog walking at Capel Sound Foreshore

In 2019 DELWP (Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning), Capel Sound Foreshore Committee of Management and the Mornington Peninsula Shire have entered into a long-term agreement where the Shire will provide community safety officers to patrol the beaches and reserve areas (including bay trail and camping areas) to ensure owners and their animals are in compliance with the regulations.

This means that the dogs are on lead at all times (and only on the beach during the permitted hours), are registered and that the owners carry dog waste bags and clean up after their dogs. Fines will be issued. This is in line with all other beaches on the Mornington Peninsula.

  • All dogs must be kept on a leash throughout Capel Sound Foreshore including camping reserve areas, beaches and bay trail AT ALL TIMES.

  • During daylight savings further restrictions apply, as follows:

All times outside daylight savings period, dogs must be on a lead.

All times outside daylight savings period, dogs must be on a lead.
