Sun 20 1000 AOS10 Tapapakanga Regional Park

95 Deerys Rd, Orere Point

Start Times 10:00-12:30. Course Closure 2:00 pm.

Directions: From Auckland take State Highway 1 to Takanini turnoff. Drive through Clevedon and Kawakawa Bay. Continue past Orere Point turnoff for a further 3km. Drive time is 60 mins from Newmarket. From Pukekohe either drive through Papakura and Clevedon and then as above (62 min) or drive through Pokeno and Mangatangi and Kaiaua (56 min).

This is a NEW map. It is a stunning regional park (established in 1995) that has spur/gully terrain with a mixture of open farmland and bush. There is a camping ground, BBQ facilities and a nice beach for swimming. The Start/Finish is beside the historic Ashby homestead, built in 1900. The contours are 5m intervals. The black impassable cliffs are definitely impassable. There are challenges for the elite orienteers and plenty to appreciate for the social orienteers. All will enjoy it.
