Signs from the start of the Sacred Canyon Road on the eastern side of the Blinman Road 1.3km to the north of the turn into Wilpena Pound. 2.2km along the Scared Canyon Road there is now a gate, as the general public is now not allowed access to Sacred Canyon.
This gate, which is normally locked, will be manned by one of the event organisers from 12.30 to 4.30 on Saturday afternoon, to allow orienteers through to the event site, which is another 3km down the road.

Note that as of September 21st, there are some short muddy sections of the road due to the heavy rains the previous week.

Map: Although mainly on the Wilpena Spurs map some courses will visit the adjoining Wilpena Creek by the kind permission of Saltbush Orienteers. The area is dominated by complex spur gully terrain. The map is predominantly vegetated by Northern Cypress Pines. Fast running is possible in most areas.

Water on Courses: Due to Covid restrictions and the expected warmer conditions, we encourage and highly recommend all competitors carry their own water. For courses 1 & 2 only there will be a mid course common drinks control about 100m from the finish. Competitors not wishing to carry their water can place their own clearly identified drink container there prior to their run.

Courses: (These are provisional lengths which maybe updated)
Course 1 Hard 7km
Course 2 Hard 4.8km
Course 3 Hard 2.8km
Course 4 Moderate 2.9km
Course 5 Easy 1.8 km
