Victorian orienteers (thanks to the Nuggets and Bruce Arthur) have trained and left tapes for anyone wishing to access the training. The maps available are Chewton Diggings, Crocodile Reservoir, and Smith’s Gully. Orienteers will need to print the map from the Nuggets website or visit the Victorian orienteeering website & go to the Nuggets.
- Chewton Diggings has a 6 Km course and has interesting route choice options with some intricate mining. A course running through varied terrain for a taste of course setting on day 2 and day 3. Located on North Road at Chewton. Yellow tapes.
- Crocodile Reservoir is over the road from Day 2 and has a course set by Warren but no tapes.
- Smith’s Gully is good training for vague gully spur which will be similar to Day 1. Located on the Castlemaine – Maldon road two thirds of the way to Maldon. After clear paddocks turn right into the road that has the old school house historic sign. Blue tapes.
