HOW CAN I RESPECT COUNTRY?

1. BRING ONLY WHAT YOU NEED – IT’S BEEN A MINUTE SINCE WE’VE GATHERED SO PLEASE BE REMINDED THAT LESS IS MORE. EACH ITEM YOU BRING NEEDS TO GO HOME WITH YOU. IF ANYTHING IS IN PACKAGING, REMOVE IT. ASK YOURSELF IF YOU REALLY NEED TO BRING THAT ITEM BEFORE YOU PACK IT. YOU WILL BE WALKING YOUR STUFF FROM YOUR CAR TO CAMP, MAKE IT EASY FOR YOURSELF.

2. BE CONSCIOUS AND MINDFUL OF THE SPACE YOU ARE IN AND WHAT IT MEANS – SOAK IN AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE INCREDIBLE NATURE RESERVE WE WILL BE SHARING WITH THE TURTLES, THE EAGLES, FROGS AND ALL THE WILDLIFE THAT CALL IT HOME.

4. NO TRASH OR LIQUID SHOULD TOUCH THE GROUND – AS A CONDITION OF ENTRY WE MUST RETURN THE LAND AS WE FOUND IT. PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF THIS AND TAKE ALL YOUR TRASH HOME WITH YOU.

5. ENJOY THE COMPOSTING TOILETS, NOT TREES – THE TREES ON SITE ARE OF SPECIAL SIGNIFICANCE TO THE TRADITIONAL OWNERS OF THIS LAND. RESPECT THE TREES, DON’T PEE ON THEM.

6. TAKE HOME WHAT YOU BRING –  WE CAN’T STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO RESPECT THIS REQUEST. FROM THE DAY WE STARTED DOING CWWT OUR PUPPY PACK HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SO SUPPORTIVE OF THIS REQUEST. RIGHT NOW, TIMES HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE CHALLENGING, FINDING STAFF TO CLEAN UP HAS BEEN TOUGH. DO YOUR BIT, AND HELP US SO THAT WE CAN DO THIS EVENT AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.
