Wellington Chase MelBushO – Photos, Maps, Results, Splits, Livelox

What a perfect day for orienteering!  Our new start location at Birdsland was a hit.  From the start, it was downhill into the wetlands (aptly described) for some fast, flat legs around the lakes, along the boardwalks and bush tracks, and over the bridges. Once the blood was pumping, it was time for an abrupt change of pace, as all but the Easy course took to the steep contours of Lysterfield Park’s northern section.  Controls were on granite features, with route choice impacted by climb and vegetation.
