Visiting pastoral properties


Two operating pastoral stations, Tamala and Carrarang occupy a significant portion of the World Heritage Area and provide limited access for tourism. The managers rely on the good will of visitors to keep the stations as they are. When visiting these stations please follow these guidelines:
  • Leave all gates as you find them
  • Please don’t disturb stock or interfere with watering points and station equipment
  • Driving in the bush destroys vegetation and animals’ homes. Respect efforts to rehabilitate disused tracks and degraded sites that have been closed by keeping to the main tracks only
  • Reducing tyre pressure will help avoid getting bogged and help maintain the condition of tracks
  • Camp only in designated areas
  • Take all of your rubbish with you
  • Fish offal should be disposed of in the bay, away from the shore
  • The use of portable toilets is encouraged and waste must be removed from the stations. Where toilets are not provided bury waste at least 300mm deep at least 100m from camping areas or water
  • Pets are allowed with prior permission only
  • Firewood must be brought in with you and not taken from the local environment. A ‘no fire’ policy may be introduced if the current rate of degradation continues
  • Firearms can only be carried with prior permission
  • No chainsaws
