If you live in Noosa and own a dog, your dog must be registered with Council. Dog registration provides peace of mind for dog owners. Cat registration is not required in Noosa, however, there are still mandatory requirements for cat owners.
It is a requirement that the keeper of any animal maintains a suitable enclosure to prevent the animal from escaping their property. It is also a requirement that any animal in a public place is kept under effective control. For dog owners this means that unless you are in a designated off leash area, your dog must be on a leash, held by a responsible person at all times. Designated off leash areas can be viewed on Council's interactive maps.
