Note that the AOS 7 event on 18 August is on the Hedley Dunes North map. The access road to the event passes through the Hedley Dunes South map. Secondary school competitors must drive or be driven directly to the Hedley Dunes North map. No stopping on the road or deviating from the road is permitted.
From Auckland, follow SH16 along the North Western motorway and on through Kumeu and Waimauku to Rimmer Road, 19 km north of Kumeu. Turn left into Rimmer Road and travel four km to the forest entrance (sealed road). Turn LEFT into the forest and travel along a metal road (following orienteering direction signs) to a manned gate. Follow orienteering signs to the event. Do not deviate from the signed route.
Note: The condition of the road once you leave the seal can be poor; there are areas of potholes and washed out parts. There may also be other traffic on the first portion of the gravel road. Drive with extreme care. Headlights must be on while driving in the forest.
Allow plenty of time for slow travel on the metal road.
