What is the Recovery Romp?

It is a series of 4 events around the Hobart area. 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, over a period of 4 weeks, from June 15 until July 12. You may wish to record your times on this spreadsheet upon completion.

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.

Course Locations

Knocklofty North

This is a chance to explore the Mt Stuart end of Knocklofty Reserve. Park at the top of Mt Stuart Rd and walk about 250m up to the start at the sign titled “Knocklofty…a wildlife haven”.

Waverley Park

Explore the tracks and bushland of Waverley Park, renowned for its native plants. Park near the corner of Quarry Rd and Carawa St and walk about 100m up to the start at the junction of two tracks.

Tolosa Park

Your chance to explore the bushland and hills behind Glenorchy. Park at the end of Tolosa St, walk inside the gate and turn right. The START and FINISH marker plates are on the fence next to the brown container.

Pittwater Dunes (Available Now!)

Once again we venture into our favourite (and hardest) orienteering area. The pine forest and sand dunes behind 7 Mile Beach are beautiful – and bewildering. Park in the carpark at the eastern end of Surf Rd.
