Our favourite dog parks on the Sunshine Coast

In no particular order, our top dog parks are:

Buderim Dog Park

Either for walks or playtime, Buderim Dog Park is large and fenced so there’s plenty of room for dogs of all sizes. There’s two fenced sections, one for large dogs and another separate fenced area for small dogs. And there’s an undercover gazebo with seating so you can shelter from the sun on those hot days along with dog water bowls. It’s also a great meeting place, with local dog lover groups meeting there regularly.

Muller Park Dog Park

Muller Park Dog Park is the perfect spot for the whole family. Located right next to a skatepark and basketball court, kids can play while your dogs can have some off-leash fun. The large fenced areas is off-leash 24 hours, whle the wider park is off-least between the hours of 4pm to 8am. You can even make a day of it with plenty of shaded seating and picnic areas to relax and enjoy a meal.

Buddina Off-Leash Dog Park

With an unobstructed view that looks out across the ocean, right up and down the coast it is no surprised it’s called “the best dog park with a view”. Stretching across the grassy hill at Point Cartwright, Buddina Off-Leash Dog Park is an after hours Sunshine Coast dog park allowing pooches to run free from 4pm to 8am.

The essentials to take to Sunshine Coast dog parks

Before you head off for some fun at the dog park, remember these essentials:

  • Fresh drinking water in case the park you choose doesn’t have a dog fountain
  • Pet sunscreen, especially if it’s a hot day as our pooches can burn just as easily as us
  • Doggy poo bags
  • Always check signs, even if you have visited in the past, in case rules around on/off leashing have changed

But the most important essential of all – have fun!


If your pet is ill or injured, contact your local vet or your closest Sunshine Coast emergency vet immediately.
