Native Australian animals safety
Our landscape is home to a large range of native Australian animals which can occasionally create hazards on our roads.
What to look out for on our roads
Kangaroos, koalas, echidnas and emus on the roads are the most common concern in our area.
Wildlife is especially active around the areas of our roads that have roadside vegetation close by or are known wildlife crossing areas.
Additionally natural seasonal movements, food resources during summer, and rainfall events can be a problem too, so take care to look for wildlife warning road signs.
Collision risks are higher at dusk and dawn when wildlife is most active throughout these landscapes.
If you do collide with an animal, you must stop to check on it and contact one of the below organisations.
