Orienteer in the forest surrounding the great Wallace Monument.  Parking is free, cafe and toilets on-site and a chance to enjoy great views from the viewpoint.

There are three courses available, of increasing difficulty.  Find the controls in the order shown:

Short Course - 1.6 km

A relatively simple course for beginners of families with small children.  Find the controls in order. It will probably take about 20-40 minutes depending on how much time is spent enjoying the forest. You could detour up to the Monument viewpoint if you have spare time.

Medium Course - 2.2 km

A slightly further and more challenging course than the Short. This one gives you the opportunity to orienteer past the Monument and viewpoint.    It will probably take about 30 - 45 minutes depending on your pace, navigational skills and time spent enjoying the views.

Long Course - 3.2 km

The longest and most challenging of all three courses. This one also has the opportunity to pass by the Monument and viewpoint.  It will probably take 45 - 60 minutes to do depending on your pace and navigational skills.  If in doubt, try a shorter course first.
