About the Event
The area comprises private property and is characterised by mostly open-running forests (some parts a little slower than others), with some steep hills and (if you are very lucky or are running courses 8 or 9) some patches of open farming land. In 2014, when this map was last used, Mike Morffew described it succinctly as “open forest with spur gully terrain and areas of rocky ground”. The map features many root mounds, none of which have been selected as control features. Sorry to all of you who grew to love these control sites recently at Curryjong Rivulet.

Beginners will be orienteering mostly in farmland. The moderate difficulty course will be largely in forest terrain.
