Leave Midland and travel up Great Eastern Highway until you pass through Sawyers Valley. After passing through Sawyer’s Valley travel past the Old Northam Road turnoff to Chidlow. One kilometre further on turn right into Gorrie Road (O Signposted) and follow the main gravel road. The next intersection will be O Signposted into Chamber’s Road. Follow this main dirt road and watch for small orange and white “O signs” to the assembly area. There is plenty of parking that will be signposted on the day.
