Location: Brickworks Park, Iranda Grove at Wallsend
Newcastle Orienteering Club and the City of Newcastle have installed a set of new permanent orienteering courses at Brickworks Park, Iranda Grove at Wallsend.

Club members will be at the course opening on Saturday 22nd June 11am-2pm and anyone is welcome to join in. The courses will be available on an ongoing permanent basis that can be undertaken any time after that should you not be able to attend this opening.

Orienteering is a navigation sport for all ages and levels of fitness, solo or as a family group. All you need is a map showing where to go, and you decide which way and how fast.

There are 3 ways you can get copies of the Brickworks Park map:
- pick one up at Wallsend Library.
- download and print copies from newcastleorienteering.asn.au (NOC)
- get the MapRun smart-phone app from maprunners.weebly.com/ and follow the instructions on the NOC or ONSW web-page.

Brickworks Park has barbecues, toilets and a small playground, as well as the bird hide next to the pond in the old brickpit, so come and enjoy the facilities of one of your local parks.
