Take care when planning walks for Summer

Whether you’re planning an extended walk or a day walk in the lovely bush in the Collie River Valley, remember to take extra care during the summer months.

During the months between December and the start of March, temperatures in the bush can range from low 30s to mid-40s. Make sure you always carry plenty of water and dress appropriately.

Some trails have been severely impacted by bushfires with the destruction of campsites and other structures, which were unable to be saved due to the ferocity of recent bushfires.

Always check the weather and fire forecasts. If the fire danger is very high or above, it is strongly recommended to postpone any plans for a walk, or to leave if you are already in the process of a walk.

If in doubt, and the weather forecast is for hot and windy conditions, do not go walking.
