You can benefit both mind and body when you get outdoors to explore and experience Victoria's natural places.
To ensure that you and your companions stay safe, always remember that the natural environment can be unpredictable. A bit of planning and foresight can make all the difference.
- Always follow directions from park rangers or park signs. If a park or site is closed, entering the area could endanger you and your companions.
- Keep to marked tracks and designated visitor areas, be aware of your own limitations and supervise children.
- Always remember that wildlife is just that – wild. If you encounter wildlife, don't approach the animal, keep your distance and ensure children also stay back.
