This is a series of 4 DIY events around the Hobart area. The courses will be made available during the 2020/21 summer. Participants are required to respect the current restrictions on social distancing. You use the courses by yourself or in small groups, in your own time. You may wish to record your times on this spreadsheet upon completion.

If you have registered as a Casual or Full member of Orienteering Tasmania you may wish to record your GPS track and upload it to Livelox. Just login using the "system" Eventor Australia with your Eventor user name and password. This enables you to compare your route with other participants.

Each event consists of 3 courses – Long, Medium and Short. The control locations are marked by ribbons, which you should pass by within a metre or two without touching. Some of the courses are quite difficult, so if you are a beginner you may wish to try one of our permanent courses first.

Where are the Courses?

Currently three courses are available:

Upper Ridgeway

Start and finish are on Chimney Pot Hill Road.  Drive past the Waterworks reserve entrance and to the top of Ridgeway Rd and turn right into Chimney Pot Hill Rd .  After about 1 km a gated track leads off to the right.  Start and Finish markers are attached to a post here

Sandridge Pines

Start and finish are on the side of the sign in the eastern corner of the Ranger Station car park at Seven Mile Beach.


Drive to the top carpark at the Domain, the start/finish is behind the Wireless Station. All controls are marked by pink tape. Grass seeds are a problem, so you won’t regret wearing gaiters, even so you will still be picking seeds out of your socks and shoes afterwards. The courses are designed for experienced orienteers, so if you are new to orienteering you might choose to do one of the permanent courses at The Domain instead.
