DIY Orienteering – Map Library

Welcome to Orienteering Victoria’s digital map library; the perfect way to “DIY” any time you like, with a map and a virtual course, to stay physically and mentally fit and healthy while other options are unavailable.

You’ll find links to hundreds of previous maps with courses, from recent bush, park street, MBTO and sprint events and training sessions. Maps may be downloaded for printing, for individual exercise at any time of your choosing. There are no controls in place, and no record of usage, scoring etc.  There are no maps of schools or private property.

If exercising on your own, always tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return.

Exercise Safely, Stay Local and Keep Your Distance

MapLink and DIY are intended to allow you to exercise locally; if there is no MapLink near you, use a map from the  DIY Library instead – we have hundreds of all types across Melbourne, as well as links to other extensive map libraries – and we’re adding more every day, including for some regional centres like Ballarat.

Note that most parks remain open for individual exercise only, following social distancing rules. However, facilities such as BBQs, playgrounds, toilets, viewing platforms, picnic tables etc, are probably CLOSED.  Check the websites for Parks Victoria and your local council before using a park based map.

Follow a few simple rules to keep yourself and others safe and healthy:

  • If you’re feeling unwell, stay home
  • Wash your hands thoroughly before leaving home and as soon as you return
  • Drive straight to the start; no stopping to fill the tank or visit the supermarket
  • Exercise by yourself or with your partner or family member who lives with you
  • No carpooling or meetup arrangements
  • Avoid contact with others.  Stay at least 2 metres away
  • Avoid touching surfaces such as fences, gates etc. There is no need to touch the object where the control is
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth

Park Street - DROC Map Archive (new)

DROC Map Archive

Some of these maps are very old! They were correct at the time, but may not be an accurate representation now – use at own risk!

This archive has at least one copy of almost all DROC maps, with a focus on eastern, outer eastern and south eastern suburbs, as far out as Lilydale to the east, and Cranbourne to the southeast.

There are no associated Maprun events set up for these maps.

Remember, if exercising on your own, always tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return.
