Other planned events: Walking track evaluation camera survey

Please note that NPWS staff will be undertaking a walking track survey in this location from November to early December 2023.

The survey will involve NPWS staff carrying a 360-degree camera to visually record walking track features, as part of an annual asset maintenance assessment.

This information is to ensure quality safe NPWS walking tracks for public enjoyment.

You'll be able to identify this survey as NPWS staff will be dressed in uniform carrying an above-head mounted camera.

NPWS respects your privacy. If you do not wish to be filmed, please respectfully ask the NPWS staff member to pause the camera until you pass out of camera frame.

The survey will be undertaken across multiple parks during November 2023, so will involve only very minimal time at each location and will be scheduled outside peak visitation times, so the survey it is unlikely to affect visitors.

Affects 1 park and 3 locations nearby. Show list
