City of Darwin animal education officers offer free walks and events for you and your pet.
Walk 'N Wag
City of Darwin has joined with the Heart Foundation to run a series of community dog walks -‘Walk ‘N Wag’ – aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle and helping dog owners socialise their animals.
The Walk ‘N Wag events are held every second Tuesday afternoon for approximately 30 minutes, meeting at 5.40pm and starting at 5.45pm.
Each Walk ‘N Wag event will be held at a different location, giving dog owners an opportunity to try walks they have never done before.
Walk locations in the first Walk ‘N Wag series included The Esplanade, Mindil beach, Vesteys beach, Nightcliff foreshore and Cullen Bay. Planning for the second series is already underway with The Botanic Gardens, Lee Point beach, Rapid Creek, Sunset beach, Holmes Jungle, Casuarina beach and the Mangrove Boardwalk likely to feature.
City of Darwin animal education officers will be on hand to provide dog owners with advice and support on a range of pet management issues.
If you are interested in joining any of the walks you can register using the registration webform. Dog owners participating in the walks are asked to ensure their dogs are kept on a lead and to bring ‘poop’ bags.
