Export to calendar Back

Orienteering is a naturally physically distanced activity, so come along and enjoy the competition, the outdoor environment and Victoria’s great orienteering terrain! If you do find yourself close to others, please respect and follow covid safe procedures.

From Strathfieldsaye Rd turn into Godfreys Road.

The map is the infamous Mosquito Creek, updated by Terry Davidson, a task which has included removing some imaginary gullies from the map.

Everyone is welcome. Courses are available to suit all abilities from beginner to experienced. Coaching and assistance is available to newcomers.

There are five courses on offer (hard to easy) plus a 2-hour Score course.

This event is a Bendigo Bush Saturday event, and also part of the Vic Autumn Series. Presentations for the VAS will be held the following day at Eppalock.
