    Trip intentions form

    It’s important to tell others about your trip intentions so they can contact police if something goes wrong. It doesn’t matter if you are going for a short walk or a multi-day trek. Your safety is in your hands so let someone know before you go. You’d be amazed at how many times short walks have turned into emergency situations.

    Use this form if you’re a hiker planning a trip, or the leader of a group organising a hike. The trip intentions form captures information that might help search and rescue teams find you in the event of an emergency. Your trip details will be sent to the relatives, friends, or trusted person that you nominate, with instructions on how to contact Police Search and Rescue if you don’t return on time.
