All kiwi orienteers have been invited to Western Australia for next year’s Australian Orienteering Championships and Kambarang Karnival incorporating the Australian Schools Orienteering Champs (ASOC) 2023. It looks like it features a load of granite terrain. The Bulletin One PDF linked blow has more details on the 2023 Australian Schools event. 

The programme:
Event 1: Sat 30 Sept AUS Champs Middle Distance
A totally updated and improved map using LIDAR in classic, beautiful farmland granite. Complex and challenging but definitely no tears! This area was first used in Easter 1993.

Event 2: Sun 1 Oct AUS Champs Relay
A mix of complex and fast farmland granite, ideal fun for a relay, on an updated map adjacent to event 1.

Event 3: Tue 3 Oct Schools Sprint and Public Pre-Entry Event
A beautiful private school next to the Canning River in Perth.

Event 4: Wed 4 Oct Schools Long and Public Pre-Entry Event
More farmland granite to enjoy East of Perth and just west of Brookton, first used in Easter 2011.

Event 5: Thu 5 Oct School Relay and Public Pre-Entry Event. And even more open farmland granite to enjoy in an adjacent area to event 4.

Event 6: Sat 7 Oct AUS Champs Long distance
A mix of granite, gullies and spurs in mainly runnable forest. First used for the Australian Champs in 1988, this fabulous area has been begging for a return to the national competition arena.

Event 7: Sun 8 Oct AUS Champs Sprint
Comprising two adjacent private schools on the Swan River in Perth, this totally new map is complex and challenging – a great way to finish the Kambarang Karnival.
