Off-leash designated dog areas in Kununurra

Published: Friday, 26 June 2020 at 8:54:12 AM

The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley Rangers would like to remind the community of the off-leash designated dog areas in Kununurra.

Under the local Shire’s Local Laws 2003, Dog owners may take their dog off-leash at the Cemetery, Pump Shed, Lakeside Bush Path, and Swim Beach (areas highlighted in the map below). Within the designated off-leash areas, the dog owner must remain in control over their dog and carry a leash.

Owners must ensure their dog(s) can:

  • respond to command and returns when called;
  • remains a reasonable distance from the owner at all times;
  • and does not act in a threatening or aggressive manner to people or animals.

Under the Dog Act 1976, dog owners must also ensure their dog is wearing a collar with a securely attached registration tag. Failure to comply may result in a fine.  

Thank you for your understanding.
