Terrain details: 

The map is a mix of walking tracks, steep slopes with long grass and mixed runnability vegetation.
The ground can be slippery due to the loose pine needles/ leaves and dryness in places.
There are dangerous cliffs near the walking tracks, please take care.
Good footwear is recommended. Orienteering shoes definitely better than road running shoes here!
Beware of other people out walking on the tracks and motor vehicles on the streets and in Corsair Bay car park.
Currently there are no horses in the paddock at Pony point and the electric fence is turned off.
