It’s dangerous out there, take care
Bush walking and other activities described on this website are inherently dangerous, and can cause loss, injury and death. You are responsible for your own fitness preparation and for understanding the risks and dangers associated with your activities.
All information on this site is general; you should consider your personal situation. Geographical material provided on this web site for viewing and download, including GPS tracks, are not intended as a navigation tool.
Walking responsibly – GPS tracks and route marking
GPS track sharing, in addition to traditional guide books and hiking websites, has enabled many people to discover new routes to walk. GPS tracks with Google satellite view enable us to better understand our destination before we head out, and to review our tracks post-walk to enhance our appreciation of the land. But all technology should be used responsibly.
We don’t share GPS tracks for all our walks, such as walks in wilderness areas where the land can’t absorb high traffic. We don’t share GPS tracks for walks off track, or walks where we believe specialised navigation and safety skills may be required.
We do appreciate cairns that others have placed to help us follow an indistinct footpad, but generally we don’t disturb cairns or mark tracks with pink tape. Others might think differently on this.
