This is a NEW map.
It is a stunning regional park (established in 1995) that has spur/gully terrain with a mixture of open farmland and bush. There is a camping ground, BBQ facilities and a nice beach for swimming. The Start/Finish is beside the historic Ashby homestead, built in 1900. The contours are 5m intervals. The black impassable cliffs are definitely impassable. There are challenges for the elite orienteers and plenty to appreciate for the social orienteers. All will enjoy it.
