Leave no trace

Leave No Trace is advice for walking on Kingborough’s tracks and trails. It’s based on the following principles:

Plan ahead and prepare

  • For longer walks, let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return.
  • For walks at high altitude, always prepare for extreme weather, hazards and emergencies.
  • Observe the regulations regarding dogs, horses and bikes.

Dispose of waste properly

  • Take your rubbish home with you.
  • If you must emergency bush-toilet, please deposit all waste in a hole dug at trowel-depth (15 cm), at least 100 metres from any track or watercourse. Cover and disguise when finished.
  • Dog owners should carry plastic bags to collect dog poo.

Walk on durable surfaces

  • Stay on the marked track to prevent getting lost, erosion, and spreading root rot.

Leave what you find

  • Leave Aboriginal artefacts, rocks, fossils, plants and other natural objects as you find them.

Respect wildlife

  • Observe wildlife from a distance, especially during breeding seasons (eg nesting shorebirds in spring).

Be considerate of others

  • Many walks pass close to private property. Please respect residents’ privacy.
  • Keep dogs on a lead and under effective control on walks where dogs are allowed.
