Dogs in Dinner Plain
A place your dog can play in the snow!
It's hard to find a place in Australia to take your dog to play in the snow, but not at Dinner Plain! Our village is the only freehold land in the country to sit above the snow line. However, as our village doesn't have any fences and is surrounded by the Alpine National Park, we do have a few rules.
Firstly, your pooch much be registered with your own local Council. Then, you must also register your dog with the Alpine Shire Council. You can do this in person at the Alpine Shire Council office in Bright, or at the Dinner Plain Accommodation office on Big Muster Drive, Dinner Plain. These registrations are valid for one year so you can bring your dog back as often as you like.
Because we don't have fences, you will need to keep your dog on a leash in public. However, there is an off-leash area down near the treatment ponds and, in winter when the tennis courts aren't being used for tennis, you can let your dog stretch its legs within this fenced area.
Quite a few houses in Dinner Plain are pet friendly. You can find out more about pet friendly accommodation by contacting our accommodation service providers
Please enjoy the extensive walking trail around Dinner Plain village with your dog, but refrain from entering the Alpine National Park.
Enjoy your stay!
