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 rules for physical distancing, mask wearing and hygiene.

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 part of the Vic Autumn Series, so if you choose the same course at each event, you can compare your results with others on it across the series, but this is not an obligation – choose whichever course suits you. But do note the course closure time – you need to be back by then.

Please also note:
- Dogs are not permitted to attend or participate.
- Where parking is within an area managed by ParksVic or DELWP (ie. non-private land), cars must only be parked on roadways or in designated parking areas.
