Bush 1 - Whiteman Park

Sunday, 02 May 2021

Whiteman Park, Swan Valley

Come to scenic Whiteman Park to try OWA's first bush event for 2021! Spend your Sunday morning exploring the park while looking for hidden orange and white flags, then continue to enjoy the park in a more traditional manner after you are done with your map!

The area is generally flat and sandy with kilometres of fences and thousands of kangaroos (beware of ticks). Navigating in Whiteman Park is not difficult but your route choices will be determined by out of bounds areas and the many barbed wire fences.

H1-H4, M, E and VE. More details are in the Information Flyer.

Pre-enter via Eventor (entries close at noon on Saturday May 1).
