Dogs in state forests

For many people, taking their dog on a holiday with them can be quite a challenge.

Did you know that your canine friend is welcome in ALL state forests across NSW?

Just a few things to remember:

  • Your dog must be under your control at ALL times
  • In Cumberland State Forest dogs must be on a leash at ALL times
  • Always pick up after your dog
  • Ensure your pack enough food and water for your dog on long forest trips
  • Respect other campers who don’t have dogs and keep noise to a minimum

Also, many State forests are adjacent to National Parks, where dogs are prohibited, so make sure you are aware to stay within a State forest while holidaying with your dog.
