“Jarrahdale Mill” is on Jarrahdale Road, in Jarrahdale. It encompasses the old mill site (and other historic buildings), Gooralong Brook and a mixture of open and thick forest. There are numerous tracks, providing a safe and interesting environment for orienteering.
There is parking and toilets at the Jarrahdale Visitors Centre, which is within the map area.
To ensure your safety, please download our Organisational and Safety Guidelines.
There are 3 standard line courses available:
Easy: Can be completed entirely on paths, tracks and open ground, with simple navigation decisions. It does not require crossing Gooralong Brook (Distance 1.7km, 20m climb).
Moderate: Can be completed on paths, tracks and open ground but there are some significant cross-country route choice options. Expect to cover more than the ‘straight line’ course distance (2.4km, 35m climb).
Hard: Designed for maximum route choice options, with some control sites requiring more detailed map interpretation. Some control sites are a short distance off tracks. Expect to cover more than the ‘straight line’ course distance (2.8km, 60m climb).
There is also a scatter course with all 20 controls.
The start and finish for all these courses is at the eastern edge of the Visitor Centre parking lot. Other starts could be used by anyone prepared to design their own course using the existing control sites shown on the ‘all controls’ scatter course map. The safety bearing on all courses is south to Jarrahdale Road.
Information on the types of Control Markers and the Control Letter Codes, to check whether the course was completed correctly, can be found in the Anytime Orienteering Jarrahdale Mill Guide (PDF).
