Bendigo areas embargoed – 2015 to 2017

 Until further notice, and particularly during the period 2015 to 2017, Bendigo Orienteers Inc embargo the whole of the Yorkshire Hill map as used at Day 1 of Easter 2013, comprising the area inside the 2.5 metre cyclone wire fence surrounding Spring Gully Reservoir. No public access is permitted for entry to the fenced area unless on official water authority business. No orienteer is permitted to seek access for orienteering/training purposes without the prior written consent of the Bendigo Orienteering Club Committee. The embargo has been enacted to discourage unwanted access to the area which could cause issues for future events.
