Police Paddocks, east end of Brady Road, Endeavour Hills.

Orienteering is a naturally "isolated" sport, so come along and learn the ropes, enjoy the competition and the outdoor environment! When you do find yourself close to others, please respect and follow rules for physical distancing, mask wearing and hygiene. Everyone is very welcome, and courses are available to suit all abilities from beginner to experienced.

Choose any of the five courses: Course 1 (Long Hard - 6 km); Course 2 (Medium Hard - 4.5 km); Course 3 (Short Hard 3.4 km); Course 4 (Moderate - 3.4 km) or Course 5 (Easy - 2.7 km). Coaching and assistance is available for newcomers.
