Minimum Impact Camping & Touring Guide

A 16 page booklet, prepared by the Natural Resources Advisory Unit, has been distributed to all members in 1998. If you would like a copy, please contact your club delegate, or the Association.

The following is an extract from the introduction.

This document contains guidelines recommended for use when camping and touring throughout South Australia. These guidelines are produced to contribute to the development of an awareness of the environment and ecology in all regions of South Australia, enhancing the enjoyment of this state for all visitors, now and in the future.

It is recommended that all tourers particularly those in four wheel drives and their trip leaders become familiar with the guidelines set out in this document. The emphasis being on guide, as a degree of flexibility may be required in some camping and touring situations.

Extra care should be observed when travelling through National and Conservation Parks, which have been set aside because they have an intrinsic environmental value worthy of preservation for future generations. Visitors have a responsibility to ensure that such assets remain intact and undamaged.

This document is designed to promote an awareness of the preservation of the environment and beauty in our Parks and Wilderness areas of South Australia for all to enjoy for generations to come.

May your touring and camping in South Australia be a pleasant and memorable experience!
