Sunday 5th May 2013
Orienteering this week is on Sunday morning (5th May) at one of the many beautiful Wandoo forests close to Perth in the Mundaring catchment. These forests are generally open, with mature trees, and provide some of the best orienteering terrain in Western Australia.
Courses are available for both beginners and experts, and a coach will be available to guide recent beginners around the intermediate-level Active course. Registration at the event will be open from 9.00am until 11.00am.
Directions summary: The Malmalling map lies alongside the Helena River, East of Mundaring townsite. Follow Great Eastern Highway for 11km from Mundaring, then turn right into Gorrie Rd – there will be Orienteering signs at this turn-off. Follow Gorrie Rd for 6.6km (gravel – watch for potholes), then fork left into Chamber Rd. The assembly area is a further 2km, please park off the road.
