Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace builds awareness, appreciation and respect for our natural and cultural heritage.

The places we all choose to go outdoors to camp, to walk, to ride, to climb, to paddle, to fly and to sail, are very special. The uniqueness of the place adds to the outdoor activity experience. As more people discover the pleasures of recreating in the outdoors, it becomes more apparent that our bush, beaches and waterways need care and protection to ensure that they are around for many more generations to enjoy.

It is the responsibility of everyone participating in outdoor recreation, to follow a minimal impact code of practice. By observing a few simple rules, we can all make a difference and the special places we go will remain special.
