Picked up rubbish in and beside the river as we went along the river walk. Vans with grey water hoses on the river bank. We spoke to one lady whose van was parked backing onto the river walk, she did not know that it was not the right thing to do. On our return from Big Tree, she had moved her grey water hose closer to her van rather than out to the river.
