Summer O Orienteering at Gosford

If you have ever wanted to try your hand at orienteering, then now is your chance!

Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport that exercises mind and body. The aim is to navigate between checkpoints or controls marked on a special orienteering map. There is no set route so the skill and fun come from trying to find the best way to go.

Summer O is running for three Friday evenings, you can join us for one session, two sessions or all three. You, your family and friends can enjoy navigating your way around the stunning location of Gosford Forest Park.

Join Vagan Valley Orienteering Club and become part of the orienteering family.
