Looking after the park

Parks and forests protect Queensland’s wonderful natural diversity and scenery. Help keep these places special by following these guidelines:

  • Remember, everything within the conservation park is protected.
  • Do not take or interfere with plants, animals, soil or rocks.
  • Do not feed or leave food for animals. Human food can harm wildlife and cause some animals to become diseased and/or aggressive.
  • Stay on tracks. Do not cut corners or create new tracks, as this causes erosion.
  • Place rubbish in the bins provided or take your rubbish out of the park for appropriate disposal.

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