    Looking after the park

    Following these guidelines to help protect the natural environment for future enjoyment, and ensure the survival of native plants and animals living here.

    Visitors must comply with all regulatory signs.

    • Everything in the national park is protected. Do not take or interfere with plants or animals.
    • Do not collect firewood—fallen timber provides homes for many insects and small animals.
    • Do not feed or leave food for animals. Human food can harm wildlife and cause some animals to become aggressive.
    • Stay on formed roads—do not cut corners or create new tracks.
    • Take rubbish home with you as no bins are provided.

    See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
