Wireless Hill Reserve, Ardross

The central part of the Wireless Hill map is a beautiful bushland reserve. From the reserve you will enjoy expansive city and river views, a fast downhill start, and a slower uphill finish! Last used in 2007 (unless you came to Wrinkles on Wireless at Christmas!), this map has been extensively updated for the event. Most tracks in the reserve are paved and suitable for strollers.

The assembly area is in a lovely shady grassed area at the top of Wireless Hill. Ample parking is available in a car park near the reserve entrance, or along the loop road that surrounds the grassed area. Toilets are conveniently located only 40 m from the assembly area.
