Do not enter out of bounds areas marked with purple stripes on the map (see example below) and partially marked in the terrain with orange tapes.
We will disqualify people entering these areas as our access depends on you respecting the out of bounds areas.

Notes on the course: 
There are no descriptions on the map, but loose descriptions will be available at the start. The control codes are printed on the map in brackets next to the control number.
The lagoon/marsh is SLOW.
Put on your nimble feet coming on and off the fancy new track to the east of the lagoon as there are irrigation pipes.
There is a low wire from the last control close to the finish – be ready to pass it elegantly.
Otherwise the normal hazards while in a forest.

Parking is along Estuary Road - be careful getting in and out of your car as there is quite a bit of traffic.
