NOTES: Lots of interesting watercourse and rock features with extensive tracks across the map. Motorbikes have ridden through some areas making faint tracks which are not mapped. Termite mounds have been checked where relevant to navigation.
Setting to minimise climb and steep descent (on Short Hard and easier courses at least) as there are some steeper hills. A little bit of prickly vegetation here and there.

OUT OF BOUNDS: HEZ land on the Eastern side of the map is marked Out of Bounds - please keep out of this area.
