Renmark Orienteering Weekend

on .

Renmark Orienteering Weekend 7-8 September.

Paringa Paddocks Saturday  from 13:30 followed by SA Long Champs on Sunday morning.

Entries are now open for the SA Long Orienteering Championships at Crooked Straight near Renmark, Sunday 8th Sept.

IMG 4325This will be the first use of the new map for full length courses, making full use of this beautiful terrain.

Spectacular river views, huge variety of birds that we do not see near Adelaide, generally easy run bushland with very accurate mapping of vegetation and land features.

It was a pleasure to set courses on this map, so you will enjoy the challenge. Although the access road runs through the middle of the map, there is not the usual grid of management tracks that we know from our Adelaide Hills.

Test of your navigation skills using the map and terrain as your guide. Strategic route choices will reward those that plan ahead.IMG 4331

There is free riverside bush camping available at the event and lots of accommodation in Renmark including motels, cabins, Murray River Queen and houseboats for those who wish to extend their stay.

This is a unique opportunity to enjoy the Riverland at its best.
