This popular Wilderness Navigation Course is aimed at getting all participants to be competent at navigating in difficult and trackless terrains. It includes theory, a navigation-training manual to keep, and multiple walks based from the Mt Barney Lodge to really test out your new knowledge and skills.

We will be accessing some of the wilderness areas and potentially navigating through rainforest so bring your walking shoes and sense of adventure.

Rough Itinerary and details:

Saturday morning, we run through the theory behind Maps and their marginal information, Grid Referencing, Compass and its uses, Land and contours, then we head out on a short walk to place our new knowledge into context. Following that we cover off on Navigation Data sheets and route planning before developing a nav-data sheet for the afternoon walk. A surprise exercise in geographical embarrassment recovery concludes the day.

Sunday is a full day walk which you plan, navigate and experience in off track locations.
