Taking your puppy to the beach will be a bit easier from Wednesday, when Wollongong City Council’s Orange Zone winter hours kick in.
From April 26, you can walk your dog in the Orange Zone, on a leash, until 9am, then after 4pm. These hours remain in force until Friday September 22.
Orange Zones apply to all non-dog beaches (green zones).
Rock pools and rock platforms are red zones- prohibited areas- in order to protect our endangered and vulnerable wildlife.
Council says all dog owners should pick up after their pets.
