Park and Street Orienteering

More Fun Than the Same Old Run

Bored with running the same old block? Tired of trudging on the treadmill? Looking for a new way to give your brain and body a boost? Want to see new places and meet new faces?

Park and Street Orienteering provides the perfect combination of mental and physical exercise. You do not need a compass or any special map reading ability. However, it will test your thinking while giving you a great workout in a friendly, safe, outdoor environment.   Events are held all over Melbourne, all year round.

Our events welcome people of all ages and abilities, and accommodate everyone from the elite sports person to those looking for a good walk to help stay in shape.

Families and friends can participate in groups or individually.  Groups such as schools, scouts, sports or social clubs are very welcome - but please contact us at least a week prior to the event, so we can make sure enough maps are printed.

Printed programs covering all of Melbourne are available at most events. Further information is also available on this website: Want to learn more? Click here

Special 40th Anniversary Event at Blackburn Lake

Sunday, 19 February 2017

This season Park Street Orienteering in Melbourne is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

Blackburn Lake was one of the first maps developed for Park Street orienteering, although I am told the current map is a lot more detailed than it was back then.

To celebrate this map's 40th  anniversary, Russell is digging back into his archives to provide us with a little nostalgia.  The map will be the current version – but does that control site feel familiar or perhaps the whole course?

Come along and find out and help Yarra Valley celebrate Blackburn Lake’s 40th anniversary this Wednesday evening, February 22.

The event will also be a qualifier for the Park Street Championships, with the final to be held the following Wednesday at Bellbird Dell.

If you would like to be part of this competition, check the details, compete on the running or walking course that matches your age group, and use a BLUE card to signal your nomination as a qualifier.
