Head to the sleepy town of Budeena, nestled just south of the city on the edge of Sydney’s Royal National Park. Here, you’ll find the town’s popular central beach, the blissful Horderns Beach. It curves for 580m between the Budeena Ferry Wharf and Cabbage Tree Point. From May to August, take advantage of this golden stretch of sand that is completely accessible to dogs. They can frolic in the salty water, biting at waves to their hearts content without the need for a leash. Between September to April dogs are only allowed off-leash on weekdays before 8:30am and after 4:30pm, and are restricted to on-leash outside those times. Unfortunately, the weekends during these months are reserved for two-legged visitors only.
