  • Dogs must be on lead at all times (unless in a designated off lead area)
  • You must dispose of any waste responsibly
  • Dogs are not permitted on ovals, sporting grounds, playgrounds, picnic and barbecue areas or the beach area at Lillydale Lake
  • When exercising your dog in an off lead reserve, you must carry a lead and maintain hand or voice control at all times
  • Dogs must be on lead in all Parks Victoria, Melbourne Water or DSE reserves unless otherwise stated
  • Dogs are not permitted in National Parks
