Permanent Courses

  • There are a number of permanent orienteering courses located throughout Melbourne.
  • These courses allow you to complete orienteering activities in your own time.
  • They are a great resource for coaching, training and fitness purposes.

Each course consists of permanent orienteering controls placed throughout a park or forest and a high quality map marking their position. You can use your smartphone to record your time.

Permanent courses can be found at:

  • Brimbank Park
  • Cardinia Reservoir
  • Creswick (digital only)
  • Darebin Parklands
  • Westerfolds Park (digital only)
  • You Yangs Kurrajong area
  • You Yangs Branding Yard area

High quality printed maps of most courses can be obtained from the Orienteering Service of Australia online store.

Orienteering Victoria’s permanent courses are also available on the “MapRun” app, which can be downloaded from App stores for iPhone and Android smartphones.

  • In the app, go to Event List, and look for the Victoria / Vic Permanent folder.

If you wish to organise an event using these courses, please ensure that you seek permission from the relevant land manager (usually Parks Victoria).

From parks and streets to bush and forest - there is an adventure for you.
