LEAVE NO TRACE

Our region is sensitive to human presence. We are privileged to be home to a number of endangered species, including platypus, mountain pygmy possums and alpine dingoes, as well as other rare flora and fauna.

Your behaviour has a direct impact on nature. A simple hair elastic can kill or injure a platypus, and other animals may suffer ill health from food waste and rubbish. Unattended camp fires have the ability to destroy our bushland and our homes. When entering our beautiful natural environment, always remember, take out what you bring in and leave no trace.
