Dogs on Adelaide beaches 2019-20 summer

Daylight savings kicked in last weekend and how awesome has this week been with extra daylight hours!

It can be hard to keep up with all the dog rules for Adelaide beaches given they change throughout the year and from beach to beach!

If you’re keen to let your dog off-lead, head down South to O'Sullivan Beach or one of the other Onkaparinga City beaches, otherwise, keep your dog on leash in the beaches closer to Adelaide unless it’s after 8pm in Daylight Savings.

Here’s the details:
