About us

All about dog friendly Canberra by locals in the know

Canberra Dog Walks aims to provide dogs and their owners with a wide variety of safe and fun walks and places to visit in and around Canberra.

We were inspired to create this site after taking our friends on our favourite dog walks. We are long time Canberra locals who have explored most of Canberra to find dog friendly walks that are interesting for humans too. Our friends loved our walks so much we thought, why not share our best dog walking routes with everyone?

We've expanded our site to include a Dog Blog with advice on all things 'dog friendly' in Canberra, such as the best dog friendly cafes, the best off leash parks, the best dog walking social groups, and much more. All our information is updated regularly.

We hope our walks inspire you to explore new areas of Canberra, even if you don't have a dog.

All information on our site is free and intended to help you access dog friendly Canberra independently. However, we also lead regular social group walks through the 'meetup' platform. See Canberra Dog Walks Meetup to join the next scheduled group walk.

We can also arrange individual guided walks, tailored to suit your interests.

Use our contact form to make an enquiry, or if you have any suggestions or comments. We'd love to hear from you!

Just spent the weekend in Canberra. Found your website, it is brilliant. We visited a couple of the cafés and did the Yarralumla walk. Just wanted to say thanks for a great website. Every city should have one just like it.

We traveled from Queensland to Canberra with our Labrador. And best of all I found your website, it was our go-to site. We followed several of your walks, our favourite was Yarralumla. We got to see places on our holiday that we may have not have otherwise gone. Furthermore, we are coffee lovers, so we tried out several of your dog friendly coffee shops and we weren't disappointed. Thank you for creating your most helpful website.

I came across your site this morning and went on the short Curtin playing fields walk. I found your directions easy to follow and the addition of the google map was really helpful. It's great having a resource like this. I've found that while I have some great walks just outside my door it can get a bit boring doing them over and over again. Great to find something close by where we can make a bit more of a day of it with the doggie friendly cafés.

Thank you so much for providing this wonderful site. I am a Curtin dog walker and have long enjoyed the ridge, horse paddock, dam etc. Other Canberra walk books have remarkably few leash free areas. You have definitely filled the gap. Bless you.
