About

You will be able to test your navigation skills in this challenging but friendly multi day event. After orienteering in the morning you can relax by the sea, go for a surf, explore St Columba Falls or even go for a spin around the mountain bike trails at Derby.

St Helens has some of the best orienteering terrain in Australia and is world renowned.  The town has been hosting major carnivals since the Asia Pacific Orienteering Championships in 1988.  In 2015 it was the venue for an International Orienteering Federation World Cup Long Distance race with many of the world's best orienteers competing.

Terrain

Throughout the eucalypt forests there are granite boulders, button grass marshes and intricate contour networks.  Left over from the days of tin mining the terrain also features lunar landscapes - barren areas riddled with eroded ditches, gullies, pits and water courses.
