RIDE NAME:                         The Legendary Australia Wingello Forest Endurance Ride               

RIDE BASE ADDRESS:           Martins Road, Wingello            

DIRECTIONS:                        (if using a navigation system, put in Wingello Railway Station, and then the venue, to avoid

                                             being directed down an impassable road).  It is safest just to follow the ride base arrows

                                             from Wingello.

 

                                             From the north, travel south on the Hume Highway, and continue for 10km south of the

                                             Shell McDonalds Service Centre at Sutton Forest.  Cross over Paddys River and then turn left

                                             into Murrimba Road.  Follow this for approx. 7km, then do a left-right dog leg over the

                                             railway line, and turn right onto Railway Parade.  Then take first left into Forest Road and

                                             follow the signs to the Ride Base.

 

                                             From the south, travel north on the Hume Highway, and continue for approx. 10km north of

                                             the truck checking station at Marulan.  Turn right into Murrimba Road from the right hand

                                             lane of the highway.  Follow this for approx. 7km, then do a left-right dog leg over the

                                             railway line, and turn right onto Railway Parade.  Then take first left into Forest Road and

                                             follow the signs to the Ride Base.

Horse water will be provided by tanks and troughs placed around the campsite.  These will be re-filled by the RFS as required.  The RFS are no longer able to fill water at individual campsites.  Please be patient and respectful at water points, and treat the RFS volunteers with utmost courtesy throughout the event.  If you want to offer your horses a drink on arrival, bring it with you to avoid stress.
