To fully enjoy your time in the bush make sure you are
properly prepared. Take appropriate clothing and
equipment and know how to use it.
The following lists are examples of equipment needed for walks in Oxley Wild Rivers National
|Shirt with collar and sleeves||Sturdy, comfortable shoes|
|Camera and film||Sunscreen|
All the above plus:
|Strong backpack||Warm sleeping bag|
|Raincoat||Warm clothing and spare clothes|
|Food||Stove and fuel|
|Toilet paper||First aid kit|
If you don't
have a lot of bushwalking experience, go with someone who does. Bushwalking
clubs usually run a variety of walks and other activities suitable for
beginners. You will learn a lot about important skills such as navigation
and first aid and have a safe, enjoyable time in the bush.
What can you do to help protect our national parks?
No matter what sort of activity you try, you can help
preserve our national parks so we can continue to enjoy them into the future.
Just remember a few simple things.
put campfires out
be aware of fire restrictions
stay on the appropriate tracks if you are walking, driving, mountain biking or horseriding (this is for your own safety as well as for protecting the bush)
take all your rubbish home with you
don't feed any wildlife
leave rocks, plants and animals as you find them
leave your pets at home
your firearms at home
Remember: take only photos, kill only time,
