Keep to tracks
Notify friends or neighbours where you are going and how long you expect to be; a general rule of thumb is to allow yourself to cover 3km an hour.
DO NOT leave the walking tracks, as it is easy to become lost; especially in dense rainforest.

the marauding wildlife
At night bring what you can inside the tent. The scrub turkeys will be all over your gear, looking for something to eat, or satisfying their curiosity. Even during the day, hang food up in a tree, out of reach of these birds.
Stick to the Path
In case you get forgetful, the more heavily travelled circuits at O'Reilly's come with a warning. Stay away from the edges, it can be a steep drop. And it could be added, stay on the clearly marked paths.
