Mardalup Park, East Perth
Please note: Please comply with COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time of the event. It is important to practice social distancing, allowing 2 square metres per person. Also practice good hand hygiene. You are encouraged to wear a mask while mingling with others before and after the event.
Mardalup Park is located beside the Swan River and Claisebrook Cove in East Perth. Check out the 2003 map of the area in Eventor - you'll get a feel for what to expect. All the courses pass cafes with outdoor dining areas. These are shown as temporary out of bounds (50% purple shading) and must not be entered or crossed during the competition - but you can go there afterwards! There are some significant Whadjuk Noongar cultural sites and artefacts on the map; please respect these.
Pre-entry to this event via Eventor is strongly preferred. If you are not a member of OWA you will need to register an account on Eventor before completing your entry. Then, once logged into Eventor, select the event and enter and pay online.
