Tips For Your Safety

The risks from exposure and dehydration are significant in this area. During the hotter months (at least December – March) these risks are extreme. Temperatures often exceed 40 degrees Celsius.

  • Walk in groups of three or more – in an emergency one might need to wait with the injured person while someone goes for help;
  • Tell a trusted and responsible person of your plans and provide sufficient detail to them so they can get help if required;
  • Each person needs to carry and drink 3 to 4 litres of water per day of walking;
  • Carefully review your daily drinking water needs. Carry cool water if possible;
  • There is no drinking water in the park. Extra water may be needed if walking in the hotter months;
  • Plan your walk for the most suitable season and/or daily weather conditions;
  • Wear a broad brimmed hat, sunscreen and a loose long sleeved shirt for protection from the sun;
  • Take regular breaks when walking;
  • Wear sturdy footwear and follow the trail markers; and
  • Walk during the cooler parts of the day – there will also be more wildlife about during this time.

Walk trails are usually natural unmodified surfaces. Beware of:

  • undercut cliff edges; and
  • loose rocks and unstable surfaces.
