It's obvious, isn't it? The High Court declares that some risks of recreational activities are not obvious

In Tapp v Australian Bushmen's Campdraft & Rodeo Association Limited [2022] HCA 11, the High Court majority overturns the NSW Court of Appeal's judgment and finds in favour of Ms Tapp who sustained a serious spinal injury as a result of the Association's breach of their duty of care, where the materialisation of risk was not "obvious".
