Environment



A clean environment and the protection of nature are important to Australians. It is illegal to litter, create pollution or dispose of waste without permission. For more information on waste disposal go to www.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/environment/pollution-and-waste-management or to anti-litter sites such as Clean Up Australia (www.cleanup.org.au/au) or Keep Australia Beautiful (http://kab.org.au).

Native animals, fish, shellfish and plants are protected by law. Do not hunt, fish or collect plants or shellfish before checking whether you need a permit.

There are special rules that apply to National Parks to prevent them being spoilt, and sometimes entry fees are charged to visit them.
