How you can help protect our precious beaches

04 Jan. 2024 1 min read

Summer is here and it means one thing: it’s time to hit the beach!

South Australia’s national parks and Crown land are more than just pretty sights. They're home to incredible wildlife and vegetation and include areas that hold deep cultural significance to First Nations peoples.

Before you start exploring South Australia's breathtaking beaches this summer, here's a friendly reminder of how you can help keep our coastline pristine while you soak in the beauty of these natural wonders.

Leave no trace

Pack some garbage bags and take your rubbish back home as bins are not available.

Furry friends

While we all love our canine companions, most parks aren't an ideal hangout for them. Leave your dog at home for their own safety and to minimise risk to native wildlife, vegetation and other visitors.

Please note that assistance dogs are welcome in national parks and reserves.

Fire safety

Stick to gas or liquid fuel fires (unless it's a total fire ban day) as solid-fuel fires aren’t permitted in most parks.

Stay on track

Be sure to only drive on established roads or tracks to keep everyone safe and to protect the delicate environment.

To find park-specific information – dog-friendly parks, campfires etc. – visit Find a Park for more details. And keep in mind that there are penalties for offences in these areas, so it's best to stick to the guidelines.
