New permanent orienteering courses that can be completed on Foot or on a Mountain Bike, have been opened at Paringa Paddocks, Renmark.
The project to create these courses was instigated by the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) at Renmark and funded by Renmark- Paringa Council. This required the making of a new orienteering map over part of Paringa Wetlands, followed by consultation between OSA and the Visitor Information Centre over course design and the placement of control points. The orienteering courses will enable visitors to explore some generally unseen parts of the wetland including points of historical interest. Some example control sites are shown below.
Courses start and finish at the information centre on the riverfront, or alternatively at a second venue at the Lions Park, near the Big 4 Holiday Park. Maps for all courses can be downloaded as PDFs here.
