About Dalrymple Gap
Parks and forests protect Queensland's wonderful natural diversity and scenery. Help keep these places special by following these guidelines.
- Do not interfere with cultural sites.
- Domestic animals are not permitted in the national park—they disturb native wildlife.
- Never chase, scare or feed animals.
- Do not feed wildlife, including birds and fish—it is harmful to their health.
- Rubbish bins are not provided. Do not bury rubbish—take it with you when you leave. This includes cigarette butts, which do not decompose.
- Toilets are not provided. To guard against pollution and disease, bury human waste and toilet paper at least 15 centimetres deep and 100 metres from the carpark, walking tracks and any water bodies.
- Always stay on the walking track. Do not cut corners or create new tracks.
Remember that this is a national park—everything is protected.
See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
