    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides managing authorities with guidance for walking track classification and signage in order to provide consistency of information to users of walking tracks. This is intended to minimise risk, preserve natural features and enhance recreation opportunities associated with the use of walking tracks.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard provides a classification system for walking tracks, guidance for the design, fabrication and use of track markers, and information signs to be used for walking tracks. The Standard also sets out guidelines for the erection of these markers and signs to ensure that while they will be readily visible, clear and easy to read, they will not detract from the landscape.This Standard applies to outdoor areas where the environment is the focus of recreational activity.The Standard does not include temporary track markers.
