BRING YOUR BEST FRIEND
Dinner Plain happily welcomes visitors and their furry friends. There are wonderful bush walks around the village that both you and your pets will enjoy.
Dogs are welcome to visit year-round, but please be sure you are aware of the rules in place to make sure dogs and their owners act responsibly in our delicate environment.
For dogs to visit Dinner Plain, they must be registered with your own local Council. They will also need to be kept on a leash in public at all times and you must clear up after them (so keep a doggy bag handy on each walk).
There is an off-leash area near the treatment ponds at Apian Way which you may access during the non-winter months. During winter dogs are strictly on-lead however. The walking trails within Dinner Plain village are available for dogs on leads, but they are strictly prohibited from entering the Alpine National Park.
You are able to walk your dog on lead on cross country trails Orteys and Fitzys Cirque (see map) following the direction of the signs. . Trails are signed to show you where to go. Dogs must be kept on lead. The lower cross country trails are for cross country skiing only, not dogs or walkers.
