  • Orange at 3.2km is perfect for juniors with some experience or for novice adults.
  • Green at 4.0km for experienced orienteers including those who have successfully completed the Orange course.

The start is at the southwest end of Church Dam. From the car park turn left and follow the lakeshore until the "Welcome to Hillsborough Forest" sign at the far side of the Fort,

Until the permanent course posts are fully installed, there are temporary posts at each location.
