Australian Orienteering Championships Tasmania 2020

Travel Tips

St Helens is our Carnival Hub – We’re Taking Over Town!

St Helens is just 2 hours 20 minutes drive from Launceston.  But for ease with travel, our first event is in Launceston on Saturday morning (Starts from 10:30 am for Elites & Junior Elites)

Stay in St Helens from Saturday night – for all 8 nights –  to experience an orienteering community vibe.  Not too far away are Binnalong Bay and Steiglitz

Schools Teams will be accommodated in downtown St Helens at an exciting venue to be announced

Big 4 St Helens Holiday Park is our preferred caravan park.  We’ve already booked out all self contained accommodation here.  Details on how we’ll release this accommodation to others will be released soon.  But families wanting an “Invitational Camp” style experience for their children will be given priority

At this caravan park there is a huge communal kitchen, a games room, a large modern undercover kitchen area with a pizza oven and a fire pit.  A perfect place to camp.  There are plenty of powered sites & tent sites available.  All are welcome to stay here!

Longest drive to any event from St Helens will be no more than 1 hour 30 minutes

Last event is within one hour from Launceston

Fly in/out of Launceston if you are time pressed (including dawn flights Saturday morning)

Fly in/out of Hobart for a road trip (2 hours 20 minutes to Launceston & 3 hours 40 minutes to St Helens)

Rent a Car if you Fly (no public transport).  Book with AutoRent Hertz

Bring your Car by Catching the Spirit of Tasmania from Melbourne to Devonport (followed by 1 hour 15 minutes drive to Launceston)

Whatever your Plans – Book Early!
