Visiting K'gari safely
Safety is our concern, but your responsibility. QPWS&P brochures, signs and web pages offer you safety information—please read it and heed it.
- K'gari has a network of tracks and roads and a very long eastern beach used by pedestrians, fishers, wildlife and vehicles.
- Some roads are one-way only, some are shared zones—vehicles must give way to pedestrians—and some are management tracks with no public access.
- Look for traffic signs on the upper beach—the beach is considered a road where vehicles are permitted.
- Safety and regulatory signs warn you of the dangers, rules and regulations, and ways to help conserve the special features of K'gari.
- Walking track entrances, camping areas and day-use areas have information and orientation signs, including site-specific interpretive materials.
- 'Aircraft landing zone' signs are located at either end of the designated landing (and take off) areas for the authorised small planes that are permitted to land on the island.
