Always let the park rangers or the police or locals know where you are heading,many lives are saved when people go off the walking tracks and get lost.
The tropical cclimate is very hot and humid so please plan your day trip accordingly.
Be careful of some vegetation when hiking/walking as the forests have wait- a-while palms and the stinging trees that contain a toxin that stings and lasts for weeks.It is very painful.
Lots of plants,vines and fruits of the forest are poisonous and need to be handled with care. Be on the look out for snakes and other species including the Southern Cassowary,stay still or back off slowly and allow them to pass rather than trying to make contact with them,it is their natural habitat.
Please take your rubbish with you and if you need to go to the loo,make sure you cover it over with soil or leaves.During the wet season the tracks can be very muddy and slippery
