Australian Three Days - Early Bird Entry Closing Soon
Wednesday, 17 December 2014
The 2015 Australian 3 Days will be back in South Australia from the 3rd
– 6th April 2015. This
traditional Easter orienteering event will begin with the Prologue in Jamestown
using a newly mapped area within this historic township. The three bush days
will be held on mallee areas about 30 km east of Jamestown and 50 km north of
Burra. These areas are north of those

Day 1: Wonna Creek – part of the existing Southern Bri-Glen - Northern Merridee

Day 2: Northern Bri-Glen –Tundarri (new area)
Day 3: Mulga Valley (new area)
Bri-Glen (example map below) and Merridee were first used for the Australian Three Days in
1990. The areas to be used on these maps
have been remapped by Paul Hoopmann (Bri-Glen) and Adrian Uppill
(Merridee). Paul has also mapped the new
Mulga Valley map, and Adrian the Tundarri map and Merridee extension. The terrain is complex spur gully, with some
very deeply incised and complex water courses on parts of the maps. Linear rocky outcrops are common. Mallee cover, limited light green and
scattered open areas will make for fast running and fast km rates.
