Communal Child Care

In Australia we have very stringent laws on the provision of childcare even by volunteer organisations.  We simply can not provide child care.  However - we do provide a tent for parents with young children to hang out in and sometimes parents help each other out by looking after each other's kids.  This is what we mean by communal child care.  If you are looking for a babysitter we can flag this on our Facebook page but it is something you need to arrange privately.  Note the Split Start Times Request form when you enter via Eventor.

Food & Drinks

Details of the food and drinks available for purchase at each event will be in the ET2018 Guide and available here closer to the carnival.

Mobile Phone

There is no mobile phone service on Day 3 of the A3Ds.  All other days have coverage, at least through Telstra.

No Dogs

Orienteering Tasmania has a policy of no dogs at orienteering events, even though they may be held in public places where dogs are permitted.  Every day of the A 3 Days is on privately owned farming property (sheep) and plantation land (might be baits laid).


The assembly area of each event includes food and drink, toilets, registration, changing area, communal crèche and first aid.
