Courtesy Guideline

(for walks with the Melbourne Bushwalkers)

By participating you AGREE to:

  • Respect the rights of other walkers.
  • Follow instructions of the leader, "whip", or bus driver.
  • Turn up on time.

Care for the Environment:

  • Take your rubbish home - even if biodegradable.
  • Avoid trampling on sensitive, new or rare growth.
  • Minimise plant damage - don't cut track corners.
  • Leave wildlife alone - whether native or introduced.
  • Keep at least 100 metres away from watercourses for toilet stops.
  • Bury toilet waste at least 15cm below the surface.
  • Look after community property, including huts.


WARNING! Bushwalking is inherently risky, and walkers are responsible for their own welfare and safety. Any walker should inform their walk leader of special factors such as pre-existing health and/or fitness problems.
