Health and Safety on the Trail

Please take note of the distance markers which provide information of the distances and have GPS references.  If the worst-case scenario occur the emergency services need to know the quickest route to your location.

There are some sections of the trail that have NO mobile device coverage. You may have to approach a nearby house to use the landline to call emergency services on 111.

 

Take sufficient supplies

  • Take plenty of drinking water, food, clothing and regularly apply sunblock. Do not drink water from any of the creeks.
  • Weather patterns can change quickly. Wear layers and pack a wind/rain jacket.
  • Make sure you have a fully charged mobile device for the worst-case scenario.

Take note of signage there may be maintenance being carried out on the trail requiring diversions on and off the trail.

Light no fires, dogs on leads are only allowed on certain sections of the trail. Other sections are on private land, respect other people’s property.

There are some compost loos on the trail, please poo in the loo.

Always take your litter with you.

 

Categories of fitness

  • Make sure the distance you're doing is suitable for your fitness, and the weather on the day – the trail sections that are easy in good weather can become difficult in windy, wet or cold conditions.
