Park and Street Orienteering provides the perfect combination of mental and physical exercise. You do not need a compass or any special map reading ability. However, it will test your thinking while giving you a great workout in a friendly, safe, outdoor environment.   Events are held all over Melbourne, all year round.

Our events welcome people of all ages and abilities, and accommodate everyone from the elite sports person to those looking for a good walk to help stay in shape.

Families and friends can participate in groups or individually.  Groups such as schools, scouts, sports or social clubs are very welcome - but please contact us at least a week prior to the event, so we can make sure enough maps are printed.

Printed programs covering all of Melbourne are available at most events. Further information is also available on this website: Want to learn more? Click here

Excellent route choice coupled with superior speed enabled Bruce to take out the gold medal by a comfortable margin over a quality field of Melbourne PAS orienteers. Andrew Hester and Alex Ikin filled the placings.

Also for the third time in a row, Rachael Johnson comfortably won the Open Womens Final with Christine Raviart and Alicia Dymowski taking the minor placings.

Winners of the gold medals in the Mens Age Group Finals were: Geoff McLean (Senior Men), Ian Dodd (Veteran Men) and Rick Bailes (SuperVet Men). Janine Steer won the gold in the Veteran Womens Final.

Three highly talented Junior Park & Street Orienteers contested the Junior Final, with Nick Collins and Lanita Steer taking the gold medals and Oliver Biggar earning a silver medal. All three were highly placed in the overall B Course results.

The Power Walking gold medals went to Steve O'Connell by a point from Mark Hammond in the Mens Open PW Final, and Ron Frederick from Michael Hayward in the Mens SuperVet PW Final.

Jo Torr scored gold in the Womens Open PW Final from Maria Main, and Lyn Green collected gold in the Womens SuperVet PW Final by a point from Sandy Burgoyne.
