Learn to navigate with a map and compass!

The skills of reading a map and using a compass are essential for bushwalking, and having these skills means relying less on your phone and being stuck when it runs out of battery or loses signal.

In this 2 hour session, we cover a range of topics that will give you the basics of how to navigate through the bush. This is a great opportunity to come along, learn the skills, then practice them in a fun way. We will cover a range of topics including compass parts and use, norths, magnetic variation, map legends, contours and scale and much more.
