  • Course Status

  • Last checked April 2024.   Everything OK – note that post P has been moved out of its bush and across the path.  Also, the cafe and toilets are currently shut as the business has closed.
  • The previously-missing post G has been relocated about 30m SW to the N side of a pair of trees – get a new map!
  • Control U has been moved a few metres so it won’t become overgrown in Summer.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Landscape, Scale 1:4000. Last updated July 2023.
  • Start/Finish

  • There are two different Starts, on opposite sides of the park. The North Start is at the edge of the North car park (the orange marker above); the South start is outside the Cafe, which is about 150m from the new South car park (the red marker).
