The lock down area also includes the SE part of the Djerriwarrh Creek map. Strath Creek plateau or Mt Hickey might look a bit more attractive on that scale

I haven't been to Mt Hickey but I know others have and apparently it was tough but not impenetrable (there's a digitized version of it around as well). Surely if you're looking for some enjoyable orienteering within Melbourne though, the better options would be Granite Hills or Ruth's new Panton Hill map.

Indeed - and in any case there were reports of police checkpoints at Beveridge, which means either that Greater Melbourne and Mitchell Shire are considered two separate areas, or the police don't know the law that they're supposedly enforcing (which wouldn't be the first time).

I think they're considered two separate areas. DA said something about not exercising outside your shire.

If it's anything like WA, the CPs weren't anywhere near the borders - sometimes 20km or more from it. They were placed for convenience and worker safety.

CP is between Beveridge and Kalkallo. I drove down from Bendigo yesterday and was expecting it to be just outside Heathcote

Uncle JiM:
CP at Beveridge is no longer there. Saw a cycling tourist approaching the Gisborne CP today, don't know what they need to prove to get through

It appears these will be off the agenda for a while. Are there any Minor Melbourne maps?
