Kambarang Karnival 2023
The Noongar people, traditional owners of the lands in south-western WA, divided the year into 6 seasons. The Kambarang season, from Oct-Nov, is where we see an abundance of colours and flowers exploding all around us. The weather is warming, the flowers are spectacular, and it’s a fantastic time to visit WA!
The Kambarang Orienteering Karnival embraces this spirit.
Over 8 days you’ll be rewarded with high quality orienteering, including an updated middle distance map in farmland granite (granite without tears!), new Sprint maps and a fully updated bush map showcasing the best WA has to offer. Plus WA’s famous wildflowers and much more...
Event 1: Sat 30 Sept AUS Champs Middle Distance
A totally updated and improved map using LIDAR in classic, beautiful farmland granite. Complex and challenging but definitely no tears! This area was first used in Easter 1993.

Event 6: Sat 7 Oct AUS Champs Long distance
