Overall the impact is low, but localised impact can be very high at popular spots such as the Blue Pool, which is not only ecologically significant – it is sacred to the Jalunji-Warra bama.

Try to find out a bit more about the places you visit so you can minimise you impact.

Some good general tips however are:

  • don’t drive in the creeks and if you do, use existing crossing points
  • stick to the paths or walk in the creek
  • keep your dogs on a leash
  • leave nothing behind
  • limit the amount of skin products you apply before swimming
