Varied Regional Parks
Orienteering is a sport, which combines outdoor adventure with map reading and navigational skills. It involves navigating though the bush, parks or streets with the aid of a specially produced map with the aim being to locate checkpoints (controls) on various natural and man-made features along the way, such as a boulder, tree, track junction, bench seat or street lamp. Controls are generally represented by distinctive red and white markers.
If you love adventure, what better adventure than to have to find your own way around an unfamiliar area.
Initial instructions will be given as to how to read the map and other important information to help you build confidence in navigating throughout the park before taking off and finding the markers of your choice. There are 20 to find covering an area close to 5km and assistance will never be far away. The guides will be roaming around to provide additional tips if needed.
Bring a picnic blanket and stick around to enjoy morning tea after the event and compare notes.
