Safe walking tips
Extreme heat can be encountered when walking in Cape Range National Park. Between November and March temperatures can often exceed 45°C. Walking during the cooler months and during cooler times of the day is strongly recommended.
- Carry and drink adequate water (minimum of 4L per person), and wear sunscreen, long sleeves and a hat. There is no water and very little shade in the park.
- Wear sturdy footwear, follow the trail markers and remain on the trail, for your own safety.
- Stand well back from cliff edges. Undercutting by erosion can lead to weak sections that may collapse under your weight.
- Before you leave, tell a responsible friend or family member where you plan to walk and when you expect to return. Remember to let them know when you’ve returned safely.
