Q: Do I need to notify anyone? What is the Group Notification?
If you are cycling in a group of eight or more, and staying overnight at a campsite, then we request you complete the Group Notification (GN) and lodge it with Parks and Wildlife. The GN assists us, and the Parks and Wildlife Service, in considering the needs and enjoyment of other Trail users by preventing overcrowding in campsites and/or potential clashes of expedition dates of groups. While this information remains confidential, it may be used in emergency situations, such as a bushfire.
Group size is set at a maximum of 17 people, including leaders. Campsites cannot be booked.
Other cyclists do not need to notify us. You are advised to leave your itinerary with a trusted family member or friend, who should contact the police if you don't check in when expected. In the event of an emergency ring 000.
It is suggested that you always check the latest Trail Conditions and also contact the relevant district office for the latest information before your ride.
Cyclists should always complete the log book at each campsite. This gives vital information regarding your whereabouts to rescue personnel in the event of an emergency.
