General Advice

These State Forest areas are under Lease and are multi-use lands. Cattle grazing, timber harvesting & Mining Lease activities take place at different times within Clermont GPAs. Wild dog baits may also be laid in the larger GPAs - warning signs are attached to designated entry gates. GPAs may also be closed due to extreme wet conditions to avoid damage to bush tracks.

A reminder when traversing Clermont GPAs:

* Leave gates as found
* NO camping, campfires or dogs
* Respect landholders privacy, livestock and property
* Respect our community and your fellow prospectors
* Keep your distance
* Keep the bush tidy
