The Tablelands Bushwalking Club:
The Tablelands Bushwalking Club Inc. was established in 1989 and incorporated in June, 1990. It aims to promote and organize walking activities for residents and visitors to the Tablelands region of Far North Queensland. The Club has some maps available for members to use. Programs are issued four times per year and emailed or mailed to paid up members.
The Tablelands Bushwalking Club Inc. adheres to a philosophy of environmentally conscious minimum impact walking. The walk leader is responsible for planning and directing walkers on the route to be followed.
- All walkers must sign on and notify the walk leader of any difficulties or of their intention to finish the walk early.
- Use marked trails and walk single file to prevent track widening.
- Tracks may be marked with tape.
- Do not break or cut foliage unnecessarily and avoid treading on delicate plant life. Wait-a-while, lantana and raspberry vine may be cleared from tracks with secateurs under the direction of the walk leader.
- Do not light open fires in rain forest or environmentally sensitive areas. Camp stoves may be used.
- Carry out all rubbish including vegetable matter such as apple cores and orange peel.
- Walkers are advised against bringing dogs on club activities as they are banned at many locations and can affect the enjoyment of other walkers.
- When applicable, car pooling is reconmended and participants are requested to share costs.
