GENERAL

·         Lots of things HAVE to be done – fencing, “photopoint” photography, wildlife surveys (“transect” walks), fox baiting, planting, building, rabbit warren location and destruction, etc. – please indicate your expertise/interest and availability.

·         All restrictions and controls have a safety or conservation basis.

·         If you have a query – please ask!

·         If you have a suggestion – please tell!

·         UHF channel 4 repeater on Mt.Caernarvon is available for communication in emergencies – use UHF 14 for general talk.

·         Ablution water is bore water – do not drink it, and use it sparingly. A new rainwater tank has been installed adjacent to the amenities building, but water should be purified prior to drinking.

·         Please leave all gates, chains, etc., as you found them.

.         Water and Power need to be turned on when arriving and off when departing.

 

FIRES

·         During bushfire season and in times of extreme heat, cooking with gas or an equivalently contained cooking apparatus is  permitted only.

·         If a wildfire is imminent, it is strongly suggested to remain at the campsite rather than exit via the track or road. The amenities building is constructed of steel and fibro and is well insulated, so is unlikely to burn and can offer a substantial level of protection over being caught out in the open.

·        The choice to stay or leave is up to the individual but all circumstances should be considered before making that decision.
