The University of Western Australia (UWA)
Accessible for Mobility Restricted
In 1932 The University of Western Australia moved its campus to its current beautiful location in Crawley, with Kings Park immediately north and the Swan River to its east. You are invited to explore its beautiful grounds, and enjoy the architecture and outdoor art, but please respect the campus. Do not enter buildings or cross flower beds and observe all Out of Bounds areas. Also, please avoid any organised activity you may observe, such as use of the campus for wedding photos or organised events.
UWA prides itself on being an accessible campus, and access to all the control points on the map has been ‘field-tested’ and found suitable by a wheelchair user. Those pushing strollers etc. should also reach controls without difficulty.
You are invited to explore and enjoy orienteering around the campus using the map and photos downloaded from the Anytime Orienteering site. On this detailed map you will find 20 control points and 20 corresponding photos. Navigate to the centre of the control circle. At this point you will be beside the feature in the corresponding photo or you will be able to see it close by. (You may need to look up). Match the location with the corresponding photo that show details of buildings, art work etc. You may start wherever you like and when you think you have found the correct photo for each location, write the number of the location in the white circle on each photo. Visit as many control locations as you want.
The map scale is 1: 4,000 – this means that one centimeter on the map represents forty metres on the ground. There is no time limit, so take your time exploring.
