Precautions

1. Take care in bushland and grassy areas.

2. Walk and/or cycle in cleared areas only, where you can see the ground and keep to established tracks.

3. When bushwalking, wear long trousers and boots or other enclosed footwear that preferably cover the ankles.

4. Keep a watchful eye on the ground about a metre ahead of where you are walking, and avoid entering areas of long grass, rushes and undergrowth.

In spring and summer, many reptiles emerge to bask in the sun. During this time you should take precautions to minimise the chance of encountering snakes. Various species of snakes have been seen in this regional park including carpet pythons, tiger snakes, king browns and dugites.
