  • ALL tree root mounds have been removed from the map.
  • Italia Road is 90 km/h and can be busy. Take extreme care if nearby.
  • Motor bikes and 4wds often use this area, if you encounter them on your course give them a wide berth.
  • The area has been through major bushfire and regrowth since last revision. In general, green areas are given reasonable indicators of run ability but should not be relied upon for navigation.
  • Trailbike tracks have not been updated. Some mapped tracks may be hard to see while newer unmapped tracks may be more obvious. Do not rely on them for navigation.
  • Generally, most major tracks on the map are well used but some may not be as obvious.
  • In some areas there are a lot of controls close together make sure to check your numbers.
