Police have urged the community to exercise caution in the lead up to the school holidays.
The reminder comes as a man was reported ''acting suspiciously'' at the Whitewater walking track at Kingston in the state's south.
Police said that yesterday, a young girl was walking behind her mother on the track when a man tried to lure her away about 3.45pm.
The man, who had a disheveled appearance, tried to entice the girl to him using hand signals.
While there was no physical contact between the man and the girl, the child was scared and the mother was significantly concerned.
Police reminded the public to remain vigilant while out walking and to report any suspicious behaviour to the police.
