Two Rocks Dog Beach, Perth, WA
Love going to the beach but hate the crowds? Or maybe you’ve got a dog that’s not the best with other strange dogs? Where could you guys go out?
Where is it located?
There are two access points.
- Leeman’s Landing, Marcon St
- Near the Yacht Club, Jorden St
Quick access and features.
Head down the normal sandy path down to the beach.
At Leeman’s Landing you’ll have access to:
- Car park
- Poo-bags and Poo-bins
Best time of the day to go.
This place is a little out of your way, head down when you have plenty of time. Best time is in the early morning or late afternoons.
Watch out for when it gets very hot. Always use the 10-second rule!
Put your hand on the sand or pavement. If YOU cannot hold your hand, there comfortably for 10 seconds, then it’s TOO hot for your dog to walk on.
Be careful if it’s still dark because you might not be able to see any snakes or other dangerous objects your dog might encounter or eat.
Always make sure to read the signs and follow the rules, after all, they are there for every human and dog’s protection!!
Biggest danger could be heat-stroke and snakes.
Not every dog or person is a social butterfly, always ask before allowing your dog to approach and say hello! Ensure you have full control over your dog if by chance they are off lead, and just in case, always pop your dog back on a lead when approaching or being approached by an unknown pooch. Respect when other human and doggy beachgoers say “no” and just help each other out. It’s always best to keep a second lead handy!

A handy tip: If you are unsure if your dog will come back to you, call them away early and/or pop them on lead back on their lead.
Best things to take with you
- A relaxed attitude, it’s time to switch off and enjoy your dog’s company and natures beautiful scenery.
- Your dog’s favourite toys for some play.
- Some treats to reward your dog.
- A lead.
- Water and a water bowl.
- Poo-bags. There are no poop-fairies and it certainly is not fun stepping into dog poop at all! IF YOU FORGOT them, you can usually find poop bags near the poo-bins at the access points.
