Parts of the forest areas are currently subject to a controlled wild dog poisoning program. These areas are well signposted and it is essential that you, your children or any pets do not touch any object on the ground that may look like old food or meat
Weather conditions can be changeable in Imbil and the adjoining forest areas can experience a range of temperatures in June. It is also possible that the area may experience rain. Ensure you have hats and sufficient water, food and sun protection.
Native wildlife is less active at this time of year, but you may still see snakes and large goannas in the forest. Watch where you walk, wear suitable enclosed shoes and clothing and be careful of wildlife when driving
The organisers do not encourage pets (dogs, etc) in the forests or in the Imbl Showgrounds Service Park. If pets are brought to the event they must be restrained by a collar and lead and kept under control at all times.
If you have children, please keep them near you at all times as there will be rally and other traffic within the Service Park. If you take children to Spectator Points please take special care to ensure their safety at all times.
If you witness or are involved in an accident or incident at any of the event locations or public area, this must be reported to a Competitor Relations Officer or the Event Secretary.

DO’s AND DON’Ts OF SPECTATING
Do park your car sensibly so that it will not obstruct competitors, service crews or other spectators. In all cases obey parking signs or the instructions given by supervising officials. It is usually best to park your car facing the way out.
Don’t try to emulate rally drivers. Remember that if you give cause for complaint it will reflect on the whole rally. Drive carefully to and from Spectator Points, keep left at all times and be ready to give way if necessary on narrow roads.
Don’t LIGHT FIRES or SMOKE in forests. Do not smoke near a rally vehicle which is being serviced or in the vicinity of designated Refuel Zones.
Do keep clear keep clear of Time Controls, including from the Timing Marker to the Control Area. If Control Officials ask you to move, please help them by doing so quickly and quietly.
Do take all your rubbish and cans home with you. It is handy to have a bag or carton in your boot. Leaving rubbish in the forest reflects badly on the event and cans and paper add nothing to the beauty of the forest.
Do not enter the team service areas or crowd mechanics in the Imbil Service Park when they are working. They will not appreciate being restricted in their movements and you may be hurt if someone drops a wheel or a sump guard on your foot!
DRONES, UNMANNED AIRCRAFT PROHIBITED AT CAMS EVENTS
The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport Ltd (CAMS) recognises that a UAV can create observing and recording opportunities in motor sport that have historically either not been available, or only available at a high cost. However, use of a UAV in an unregulated manner can create significant risk to others. This Policy governs the use of a UAV at an Event in a controlled manner.
Rally spectators or media photographers or camera operators who wish to use UAVs at events are subject to a CAMS policy, including licensing and approvals.
Further information from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), the Australian Government statutory authority, can be found on the CASA website. Or for further information contact CAMS directly via www.cams.com.au.
