Safety Information

Our catchments are home to a variety of wildlife. Snakes are an ever-present threat in the Australian landscape, particularly in the warmer months. If you encounter a snake, give it a wide berth and do no try to handle or move it in any way.

You may be in a water supply catchment. To protect our natural areas and the drinking water supply please:

  • leave the facilities as you found them. Do not cause damage to any property, flora or fauna
  • take your rubbish with you or place litter in a bin if provided
  • unless you are in an approved designated dog on leash area, leave your pets at home. Dogs and other domestic animals can disturb the wildlife that live in our natural areas.
