About Bartle Frere

    Looking after the walk

    Please help protect this area and keep it in its natural state.

    • Do not chase, scare or feed animals.
    • Take all rubbish home with you, including food scraps.
    • Use fuel stoves only. Open fires are not permitted.
    • Always stay on the trail. Do not cut corners or create new tracks.
    • Wash at least 50m from creeks and rivers. Use gritty sand, hot water and a scourer to clean dishes. Avoid allowing soap, detergents, toothpaste and cosmetics to come into contact with creeks.
    • Toilets are not provided. Use a trowel to bury toilet waste and paper. Dig a 15cm hole at least 100m away from watercourses and tracks. Take all sanitary items home with you as they do not decompose.
    • Remember this is a national park—everything is protected.
