Dog Friendly – Greenhills Beach

The furthest North of Cronulla’s beaches is Greenhills Beach, great for dogs and their owners to stretch their legs and enjoy the sand and surf.

It’s best to drive up and park at the end of Don Lucas Reserve car park, walk across the grass to the marked entrance to Wanda Beach.

Dogs are allowed to be off leash Monday-Sunday, before 10am and after 4pm. But do check the signs at the beach or get the most up to date information from Sutherland Shire Council.


Greenhills Beach is not patrolled so is not recommended for swimming.
Dogs must be on leash on Wanda Reserve (the grassy areas near the car park), and are prohibited in the following locations:

• Behind the beach from the edge of the dunes and extending westward to the service trail that runs along the ridge at the back of the dunes.
• North of gate 1 adjacent to the 4-wheel drive park to protect the environmentally sensitive Merries Reef area.
• On the heritage-listed sand dune to the east of the partly sealed service trail.
• On Wanda Beach (south of Wanda Track 5) 24 hours a day.

All persons are present at their own risk during allocated ‘off leash’ times.  Times are also signposted at the beach.
