- Ensure the area around your fire is kept clear from debris and anything explosive, always monitor your fire. No one wants to be the cause of and accident or a bush fire.
- Do not use our waterways as a rubbish bin, not only is this lazy, it’s unhealthy for the environment, making fish and other water life sick and even die. Rubbish in our waterways can be dangerous causing accidents or injuries and have unhealthy effects on humans causing diseases.
- Separate your rubbish from recycle making it easier to take it all with you when you leave. If you’re going to be out bush for longer than a couple of days, take some rubbish with you when you’re on the shop run so you don’t end up taking home all your rubbish on the last day.
- Do not feed wild animals, our food can be unhealthy for some animals and feeding them could also teach animals to associate people with food which could lead to animals losing fear of humans and becoming pests
- If you’re bush camping with no toilet do not leave your ‘crap’ all over the place, no one wants to get to a campsite and see where your toilet was, it’s unhealthy for humans and the environment and ugly.
