For those who want to really learn to master these skills and put them into practice in a real life way, ready for that adventure you’re planning.
- Day 1: We introduce basic map reading skills, using a map to navigate, add in use of a compass and then put these to the test on an orienteering course in moderate terrain.
- Day 2: recap on nav skills, add grid referencing, magnetic declinations, triangulation & route planning. Break for lunch then head off on a 4.5km long bushwalk, beginning on walking trails then heading off-track into dense bush to put all the skills we've learnt into to the test and probably see some wildlife along the way. *Can be run over consecutive days or split, i.e.: over two weekends, your preference.
Larger groups, please call for rates.
Transport is FREE (See terms & conditions).
