Welcome

Bored with walking or running the same old block?  Tired of trudging on the treadmill?  Looking for a new way to give your brain and body a boost?  Searching for an outdoor activity and want to see new places and meet new faces?  Why not give Street Orienteering a go?

What is Street Orienteering?

Street Orienteering is a variation of the competitive sport of Orienteering.  You are given a specially prepared orienteering map.  The map shows streets, parks and pathways and the location of a number of clues.  Each clue is worth different points.  You have to navigate your way around finding the answers to the clues and writing them on your map sheet.  Your aim is to maximise your score and be back at the Start / Finish Location within one hour.

Street Orienteering provides the perfect combination of mental and physical exercise and social interaction.  You do not need a compass or any special map reading ability; however it will test your thinking.  You may walk as fast or slow as you like and enjoy a great walk in a friendly, safe, outdoor environment – and we always finish with a coffee and a chat at a nearby cafe!

Join us for a one hour street orienteering walk to have fun and exercise your brain as well as your body

We meet on the 3rd Friday of the month.

Registration: 10.15 am
Walk: 10.30 – 11.30 am
Cuppa: 12 noon at a local cafe or a picnic in a park

We walk in and around the City of Knox in Melbourne.  We have maps and walk in teams of 2 to 5 people for an hour around local streets and parks finding answers to clues.  The Start / Finish Location is different each month (click on the link below).
