Getting there

Let someone know before you go

It’s a good idea to let someone know where you’re going. Fill in a trip intention form to send important details about your trip to your emergency contact. If you are lost or require help and have phone reception, call 000 and ask for police. The international standard emergency number is 112, if you dial this number in Australia you will be treated exactly the same as a 000 call. If you believe your life is at risk, activate your personal locator beacon (PLB), then make your position visible to rescue teams and keep warm and dry.

    Ill check this out today. Thanks ?

    Hi folks, i think this is on an ‘auto’ rolling program, yes, it is very poor timing that the sequence has brought up Bunyip. Trail Hiking is a volunteer service just providing information. Irrespective of the timing, we’d all do our prep and check conditions at the time before setting off on any hike. I’m sure Darren (who does live in Vic) was not physically posting this, he would not have known when the auto rolling sequence brought up a particular hike.

    Lets give Trail Hiking Australia a break (or at least the benefit of doubt)! Posting this is not telling people to go on this straight away, it’s saying under normal circumstances this is a hike and these are the details. Trail Hiking Australia is a free and extremely valuable service and would be relying on the commonsense of the readers/hikers to understand. Congratulations to those whose responses have recognised this and responded appropriately. Thanks for your ongoing valuable service Trail Hiking Australia

    I can understand the concern… But seriously, anyone that takes note of the posts on this page should be able to understand that it is just coincidental bad timing that the scheduled post was released today.

    It isn’t the first time that a hike has been posted when there is a fire near a hike. Because Bunyip has been in the media so much, that is why it’s been noticed…
