Altona Dog BeachThere is no better place in Melbourne to bring your dog on a warm summer day than Altona Dog Beach. With shallow water, flat sand and lots of space, the beach provides a safe place for your dog to run, swim and keep cool.

While at other beaches you may have to worry about specific time restrictions or people sunbaking, the only thing you’ll find here are dogs and their owners. It is an extremely popular place for people to bring their dogs, especially if the weather is a little warmer, however you are always able to find your own space for you and your pooch.

  1. C’mon …. let’s have some sensitivity here! I woke up to -22C temperature (-35C with the wind), and the first mail I open is pics of dogs charging around hot beaches! That’s really not nice………… and Ray’s morning “deposits” are already frozen solid which dictates hacking around them to get them up!
