Lockyer National Park offers some great remote area bushwalking opportunities. The rugged terrain can be hazardous for inexperienced or poorly-prepared walkers. A high level of physical fitness and navigational skills are essential.
Walkers should familiarise themselves with the area before attempting an extended walk. It is recommended that walkers purchase a topographic map of the area before undertaking any walking.
Remote area walking is only advised in the cooler weather, usually April to September. Walking during summer can be very hazardous due to high temperatures and lack of available surface water.
All remote area walkers are expected to follow minimal impact bushwalking practices, such as observing proper sanitation and hygiene methods and avoiding polluting water in any way.
Be advised that all visitors must obtain permission from landholders before entering surrounding private property.
