Treading Lightly

The Kep Track is part of the National Trust of Australia (WA) Golden Pipeline project built mainly on a heritage rail reserve.

In order to protect the environment, please do not disturb any native animals or pick the wildflowers. Rocks, vegetation or old logs should not be disturbed, as these are often the homes of small creatures that depend on such habitats for their existence.

Avoid trampling vegetation by staying on defined tracks. Grass trees grow slowly, take care not to break the fronds. Be careful not to introduce or spread non-native species; don’t throw your pips and apple core into the bush.

Remove all unnecessary packaging before setting out. Carry a bag for your rubbish, which should be taken with you to waste bins at each checkpoint and disposed of properly.

Toilets are provided at each checkpoint – please preserve the environment 
and use these facilities. Where this is not possible, human waste should be buried 150 mm deep, at least 100 metres from any water source. Sanitary products should be packed out.

Pets are not permitted in national parks and in some other areas.

Please do not leave any food on the Kep Track. Food left out can attract small animals and snakes to the site. If you are not going to eat it, then please carry your food out with you.

Take only pictures, leave only footprints.
