Car parking will be in Black Mountain Reserve Car Park signposted (brown sign) from William Hovell Drive eastbound.

If coming westbound along William Hovell Drive there is a U-Turn place which is also signposted for Black Mountain Reserve Car Park.

From northbound traffic on Tuggeranong Parkway take the exit to West Belconnen, just past the arboretum, and follow the brown signs to the car park. Please do not attempt to take the turning from the northbound Caswell Drive/GDE directly into the car park which is shown on Google Maps.

For southbound traffic on Caswell Drive go through the Glenloch interchange and exit for Lady Denman Drive and the arboretum, turn right under the Tuggeranong Parkway toward the arboretum and then right again to head towards west Belconnen in the left hand lane. Follow the brown signs to the car park.

Assembly area is adjacent to parking, inside the reserve. Please be aware of bikes on the bike path, as the path is a major commuting route out of civic at the time of the event.

COURSES: Moderate 1 (3.6km), Moderate 2 (2.4km), Easy (2.4km), Very Easy (1.4km). Special training map available for Moderate 1 course.

COURSE SETTER'S NOTES: The map scale is 1:5000, contour interval 2.5m, Moderate 1, Moderate 2, and the training map will be a standard orienteering start. These courses/maps will not be on display before competitors start, these maps will be passed to the participants once they have started.
