    Get out into the lush wilderness of the Blue Mountains for a full day navigation workshop, where you'll learn how to master the use of a GPS. Your full day course is led by some of Australia's leading wilderness navigation professionals, who will give you all the attention and training you need to excel in the practical field exercises and your future adventures.

    After you're taken through a thorough introduction and training, you'll put your skills to the test with a series of outdoor navigation challenges. Some of the field exercises you'll take on include projecting a waypoint from a topographic map and a walking route to it using your GPS, and terrain association and recognition using a topographic map and GPS.

    You'll also be treated to a delicious lunch as you take a break and enjoy the serene bushland. By the end of the day you should be confident in how to correctly set up and use your GPS compass and altimeter, and have a firm handle on wilderness navigation for your next adventure.
