Orienteering and Restricted Postcodes

The Victorian government has announced that 10 Melbourne postcodes are returning to Stage 3 Stay Home restrictions from July 2 until at least July 29, with a further two postcodes added from Jly 4. As a result, no orienteering events will take place within, or immediately adjacent to, these postcodes, during this period. The postcodes and suburbs are listed below.  The full announcement and updated restrictions can be found here.

The following events will be impacted by this announcement:

  • Saturday July 4, Park Street at Coburg Lake – location changed to Chirnside Park, starting at Rochelle Park (already announced).
  • Sunday July 12, Brimbank Park training sessions – postponed; new date to be announced
  • Saturday July 18, Park Street at Brunswick – location changed to Bulleen Ups&Downs, starting at Sheahans Reserve.

All other events will go ahead as per Orienteering Victoria’s Return to Sport plan. The DHHS directives for community sport are NOT impacted, apart from within the 10 restricted postcodes, where only daily exercise is permitted.

If you live in any of these suburbs:

Please do not attend any orienteering events while these restrictions are in place.  However, please make use of MapLink and DIY Library, to print your own maps for individual exercise within your postcode.  Look in MapLink for maps such as Ascot Vale, Edgewater, Kensington Banks, North Melbourne or Maidstone.  Or head to the Bayside Kangaroos MapRun page for the best selection of maps in the north western suburbs.
