SUNDAY 12th May 2019 - NOY 2

Wallaroo National Park

RESULTS (On Eventor) | SPLITS (On Winsplits)

Directions:

FROM THE SOUTH. Head north on the Pacific Hwy. from Hexham, through Heatherbrae. Travel 1.7KM past the Italia Road turn-off and turn left for about 50mtrs, before turning right along the old Pacific Hwy. Follow this sealed road (with some pot-holes) for 1.7KM to the end of the tar. (Adjacent to the Twelve Mile Creek rest centre.) Veer left, then right and follow (with care) the gravelly forest road for 640M, before turning left on to Ten Mile Rd. The assembly area will be another 1.25KM.

Parking:

Parking will be restricted. Please park, one car behind the other, as far left as possible along this road. Make sure there is room for traffic to move in the other direction. (Take care when walking to the assembly/ start area.) A turning area will be available at the head of the parking queue. Parking space will be limited so we strongly encourage car-pooling or riding a bike from the end of the old highway (sealed section), where there are several areas for parking. Parking can also be found at the start of Ten Mile Road beneath the powerlines (area in yellow on map below)
