Dadirri: 9am Sunday 9th June

Join us for a bush event at Dadirri. Newcomers are always welcome! Suitable for all ages and abilities. Club Compasses can be borrowed, SI sticks for electronic timing can be hired.

Dadirri is one of the of the newest maps on the Downs and has only been used once before for the DD School Champs. Dadirri is open farm land with good spur gully features and some rocky outcrops. There are a few farm tracks across the map which provide good route choice options for the hares to try and beat the tortoises. The western part of the map is quite flat but gets hilly in the east where the 'long' course options are sure to get your heart rate going.

The November 2023 fire cleaned up most of the fallen timber, making it fast running. However, the grass (with seeds) has grown back so sock guards are advisable. To minimise weed spread between orienteering locations, please ensure your equipment is weed/grass seed free before arrival and cleaned well before your next event.

There are 6 courses on offer to accommodate all navigation and fitness levels:

Very Easy (VE): 1.4km
Easy (E): 2km
Short Moderate (M2): 2.5km
Long Moderate (M1): 4.3 km
Short Hard (H2): 3.1km
Long Hard (H1): 4.8km

As the map area is quite open terrain with good visibility and well fenced so little chance of getting completely lost, it is an ideal bush map to test yourself at the next level of orienteering difficulty, if you are at that stage.

Location: Dadirri is at 21035 New England Hwy, The Glen (near The Springs 4wd Park; about halfway between Warwick and Stanthorpe). The property entrance will be signposted with 'O' signs. Parking is inside the property (Eastern side of the Hwy) and safely away from the Hwy. Please exercise caution when leaving and re-joining the Hwy as it is a 100 km/h zone.

Prices are: Junior Member $7, Junior non- member $10, Senior Member $12, Senior non-member $15 Family Member $30, Family Non Member $40
Please pre-register to assist the organisers. Late entries please text 0458634554 thanks
