What about off-leash dog beaches

We received this last month. Do you agree?

The Sunshine Coast has an abundance of off-leash dog beaches. We take our dog there regularly. Have never had any issues with other dogs. Shame on Rainbow for not having any at all!

Times have changed and people socialise their dogs well now. Also frequent the wonderful off-leash dog parks in Gympie and have never had an issue. Come on Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay! Move with the times!

Check in Qld mandatory

Check In Qld is now mandatory for Queensland pubs, restaurants and cafes and allows contact tracers to more readily access information for the State’s public health response.

One of the best features of the app is that you only need to enter your details once and the app remembers them for future check ins.
