    The following points have been prepared for managing the Trail Hiking Australia Meetup Group so not everything will be applicable to community organised events. I though’t it would be useful to include anyway.

    Always practice the principles of Leave No Trace. Make sure you familiarise yourself with this outdoor ethic in detail. However, there are some main points for hiking. The first would be to never litter or leave behind anything. All garbage, even biodegradable things like food or fruit peels take a long time to decompose in our climate, they must be packed out. Do not damage or disturb wildlife, either animals or plants or your natural surroundings. Much of what you see is fragile and/or endangered and takes a long time to recover. Stay on the designated trail. Follow any additional rules required by the preserve or park you are entering.
