Safety alert: Winter walking - Be safe in our parks and reserves this winter
Applies from 27/6/2024
Winter walking comes with increased hazards. This includes severe weather and the risk of hypothermia.

Know before you go. Check weather forecasts and choose walks that match your abilities. Use the right equipment and be flexible with your plans if conditions change. 

Carry items for all possible conditions including sub-zero temperatures. Use our Alpine Walker Pack List and Safety Checklist to help you prepare. 

Always carry a communication device. You can’t rely on your mobile phone coverage in remote areas. Carry a physical map, a portable battery bank and a Personal Locator Beacon.

More information is on our safety in parks webpage.

Walks that need overnight walker registration​ must be self-reliant. There is no ranger presence on these tracks. If the weather forecasts or conditions change do not depart if it is unsafe to walk. Please change the date of registration.
