About Conway circuit
Keep waterways clean
Look after the waterways. Soap, detergent, skin creams, urine and food scraps affect water purity.
- Do not use detergents, toothpaste or soap in waterways.
- Use hot water and a scourer to clean dishes.
- Bathe and wash dishes and clothes at least 50m from waterways.
- Use toilets before swimming.
Use a fuel stove only
- Open fires are prohibited.
- Carry fuel (gas or liquid spirit) stoves for cooking.
- Do not leave stoves unattended when lit.
- Use existing sites at the camping areas.
- Do not dig trenches or flatten, or break, any vegetation.
- Leave your site in the same or better condition than you found it.
- Check your site thoroughly before leaving to ensure nothing is left behind.
- Always try to use toilets where available.
- Toilets can be found at both bush camps along the Conway circuit.
- To help the treatment process, do not place any rubbish or sanitary items into toilets.
- Close the lid after use.
- Where there are no toilets, bury human waste and the soiled toilet paper about 50cm deep and at least 100m from camp sites, tracks and waterways.
- Take all sanitary items with you—they do not decompose.
- There are no rubbish bins on the Conway circuit.
- Reduce your rubbish by bringing as little packaging as possible.
- Please bring out all your rubbish and dispose of it properly.
- Solid waste and litter is unsightly and can injure and kill wildlife.
- Keep the camp clean—pick up even tiny pieces of packaging and cigarette butts.
Things to remember
- Stay on the trail—shortcuts cause erosion and can lead to dead ends.
- Leave your pets at home. You will protect your pet and native wildlife, and meet more animals on your walk.
- Never feed or leave food for animals—you might be bitten or scratched.
- Our foods can be harmful, so let animals find their own food.
