Kambarang Karnival 2023
The Noongar people, traditional owners of the lands in south-western WA, divided the year into six seasons. The Kambarang season, from Oct-Nov, is where we see an abundance of colours and flowers exploding all around us. The weather is warming, the flowers are spectacular, and it’s a fantastic time to visit WA!
The Kambarang Orienteering Karnival embraces this spirit.
Over 8 days you’ll be rewarded with high quality orienteering, including a beautiful new middle distance map in farmland granite (granite without tears!), new sprint maps and fully updated bush maps showcasing the best WA has to offer. Plus WA’s famous wildflowers and much more….

A mix of granite, gullies and spurs in runnable forest. First used for the Australian Champs in 1988, this fabulous area has been begging for a return to the national competition arena.

Comprising two adjacent private schools in Perth, this totally new map is complex and challenging – a great way to finish the Kambarang Karnival.
