Treasure the Land we Love

Responsible Visitation

Look after the places you love to visit, and always leave the land as you find it. Our beautiful landscapes bring a lot of joy to those lucky enough to live here or visit – we need to ensure we protect and preserve our natural systems for future generations.

Look after yourself and the environment

  • Always take your rubbish home with you
  • Stay on track and behind safety barriers.
  • Be mindful of tide and ocean conditions on beaches and estuaries and only swim at patrolled beaches.
  • If you’re having a picnic, check the area before you leave for smaller pieces of rubbish.
  • Small items like bread tags, rubber bands and bottle caps – can severely harm our wildlife and sea-life.
  • Take extra care that rubbish does not fall out when you get in or out of your car.
  • Be mask aware – if your mask is not secured properly on your face it may blow away.

 

Take your rubbish with you

This video is one in a series educating the public about the importance of taking your rubbish home with you when you visit a park. Discarded waste has long term impacts on the environment, cultural sites as well as being a safety issue for both visitors and the rangers who work in our parks. We implore people to think about the fact that it’s #biggerthanyou
 

 

Enjoy the moment

This video is one in a series educating the public about enjoying the moment. Focussing only on capturing the best photo for social media misses so much of what it is to be present in nature. Plus jumping over barriers to get the shot has long term impacts on the environment as well as being a safety issue. We implore people to think about the fact that it’s #biggerthanyou
 

 

Stay behind the barriers

This video is one in a series educating the public about the importance of not scaling barriers to get a better social media photo. It has long term impacts on the environment, cultural sites as well as being a safety issue for both visitors and the emergency workers rescuing them. We implore people to think about the fact that it’s #biggerthanyou
 

 

 

Environmental impacts
