Notification type Section impacted Details Posted date
General advice Whole Tweed section Watch out! Snakes about! Snake season is here so remember, these creatures are a natural part of our environment.

At all times, Rail Trail users should:

  • Stay on the Rail Trail. Do not enter nearby bushland.
  • Be aware and keep an eye out for them.
  • Not try to touch or move them. (Most snake bites occur when people try to handle or interact with snakes).
  • Leave snakes alone, and they are likely to get out of your way if you give them the opportunity.
  • Knowing basic snake bite first aid and having the right supplies can make all the difference.
  • If you need first aid or treatment for snake bite, call 000 immediately.

Let’s make safety a priority while exploring the Rail Trail.
