The MountainSphere navigation weekend is a 2 day educational bushwalk that provides clients with practical training on the skills of navigation off the beaten track by map and compass. Expert tuition in map reading and use of a compass is provided, and participants immediately put these skills in practise to find a route and navigate to a beautiful campsite hidden in the heart of a sandstone wilderness. Apart from the educational aspects, the navigation weekend is an excellent opportunity to get off the beaten track and explore a beautiful wilderness area in a small group expedition with people who are there for the same reasons you are.

Here are some photos from the navigation weekend held on 28-29 September 2019. This navigation weekend was a single group booking by Women's Adventure ACT. So 11 women from Canberra made their way up to Lithgow on the Friday and stayed a night in Lithgow before meeting up with me on Saturday morning for the navigation weekend.

Some of the girls found the hiking hard but they all had a great time. There was a very positive and friendly mood, they learned a lot and clearly enjoyed every minute of it.

From my side it was a pleasure to take this group and would welcome another group from Women's Adventure ACT on my navigation weekends.

Some compass work.
Late afternoon, time to head to a viewpoint for some photos.
This little rock scramble is where a rope comes in handy.
All are up and ready for the next day's hiking.
