Venue: Ophir Reserve is a historic gold mining area 27km north east of Orange.

First mapped by Eric Andrews for the Easter Carnival in 1996, the area has numerous gold diggings, adits and pits as well as old water races which were hand-dug, contouring round the hillsides. The terrain is open, fast running, steep in places.
