Car Parking Permit for Australian 3 Days

A car parking permit is required for the Australian 3 Days.  The cost is $10 per vehicle and this covers you for all 3 events.  If you purchased this when you entered you can collect your permit at Registration.  If you did not buy one, you can purchase a permit at Thursday Registration or at the Prologue Registration (preferred) or upon your arrival at your first event.  Either option - Cash Only!

Embargoes

All of the areas being used for the Australian 3 Days are embargoed:

  • UTAS Sandy Bay Campus (being a sprint map in a public area you are allowed in the area but not for organised events or training).
  • All of the current Sandstone Valleys map at Melton Mowbray (for the event this will be renamed Lovelybanks West and Lovelybanks East.
  • All of the current Redbanks map and the area immediately north of the current map (the new enlarged area will be called Curryjong Rivulet).

Old Maps

aust3days_dates

The old map of Sandstone Valleys being used for Days 1 and 2 will be extended to create the two new maps of Lovelybanks West and Lovelybanks East.  And whilst Day 3 starts from the old map of Redbanks, most of the area actually extends into previously unmapped terrain.

These maps will be updated to create the three maps of Chiron, Golden Fleece and Lively's Bog:
