Orienteering Australia

Event information: Kapinnie Lakes

Export to calendar Back

Trending NNE for 50km from Mount Greenly is the extensive Kapinnie playa lakes region; the Kapinnie Lakes orienteering area is quite unique; it consists of fast-run open agricultural and pastoral land in and around numerous lakes, generally dry and crossable in summer and water-covered and boggy in the wetter months. Climb is negligible, and for that reason the map has no contour detail. Six courses are available for all ages, levels of skill and experience – three hard courses, two moderate and an easy.
To get there, take a leisurely drive through a greening landscape to Cummins; turn left onto Bratten Way just beyond Cummins Oval, and follow this road for about 12km where an orienteering sign will direct you right onto Yeltukka Road. Orienteering signs will lead you a further 13km to the event area.
Private property, so no dogs, please.
Hot tea and coffee available. Bring some chops and sausages as the barbecue plate will be oiled and ready when you finish your course!
