Bush Orienteering

Bush Orienteering is more than just a trail run, involving moving off the trail into the bush. There is no marked route on the ground; the aim is to reach pre-determined control points using a map for navigation. The key is concentration and the ability to make quick decisions while moving as fast as you can. It’s not just for runners, but walkers as well, with courses available for everyone regardless of fitness or age.

ALL VICTORIAN ORIENTEERING EVENTS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED OR CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, EFFECTIVE MARCH 23 2020

Bush orienteering is generally held in Autumn through to Spring. Weekend events are held throughout Victoria,  with the main events being:

  • Two Victorian Championship events are held each year. These are open to all, providing the opportunity to test yourself against your peers or to simply provide another excuse to get out into the bush.
  • The Victorian Relays are a chance for club based teams to compete head to head in an exciting annual contest
  • Standalone events, each with a unique format, eg Maxi 3 Hour, Bendigo ToDay
