Dogs at Gantheaume Beach
Published on 17 June 2020
Shire of Broome rangers have been contacted by a number of residents recently in relation to concerns about dogs on Gantheaume beach.
We want everyone to enjoy our amazing outdoors and our amazing beaches in harmony.
Gantheaume beach is an off-lead dog-exercise area – but pet owners still have responsibilities; to be in control of their dog and pick up the poo.
Please ensure you are in control of your dog and he/she is within arm’s reach. Remember, while Broome is a dog-loving community, our four-legged friends aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.
If you are driving down to Gantheaume beach, it is important not to go beyond the 500m cut-off for vehicles – this is clearly signposted.
Please note, from April 1 – August 31 (between the hours of 5-10am) each year, Gantheaume Point is a designated Horse Exercise area from the access ramp to 2km north along the beach, which in turn restricts dogs from being off-lead in this area.
