World Orienteering Day Puts Melbourne on the Global Map

Melbourne hosted one of the very first of 500 World Orienteering Day events this year, at Templestowe Heights.  As trailblazers, we earned a writeup and photos, featuring locals Lauris, Stuart and Frankie, on the home page of the International Orienteering Federation!
