Information for Dog Owners

Dinner Plain welcomes visitors and their furry friends year-round, but please be aware of the rules in place to make sure you and your dog act responsibly in our delicate environment. Dinner Plain is located in a sensitive area surrounded by the Alpine National Park. There are many walks you can take your dog on inside the village, but it's important you do not take your dog into the National Park.

Need to know

  • All dogs entering Dinner Plain must be registered with your own local Council.
  • Dogs must be kept on a leash in public at all times and you must clean up after them (never bury dog poo in the snow).
  • There is no off-leash area in Dinner Plain.
  • You may walk your dog inside the village on the following shared trails: Fitzy's Cirque, Ority's, and Collector's Cirque.
  • Some trails are one-way only. Trails are signed to show you where to go.
  • Please walk off to one side of the shared trails to prevent damage to the groomed surface and set tracks.
  • Please do not walk on the cross-country ski and snowshoe trails east of the Cobungra Platter Ski Slope.
  • Dogs are strictly prohibited from leaving the village and entering the Alpine National Park.
