Need to get outdoors - for a walk or run? Want to get the kids outdoors for exercise and fresh air?
Navigation sports provide you with the opportunity to venture outdoors and enjoy Melbourne's parks and gardens. Learn how to read maps, how to navigate from point to point, get a little exercise and keep in touch with friends and fellow participants via FaceBook
We believe this can be done with minimal risk - provided we understand the issues and take sensible precautions.

Be considerate of others; if you're feeling unwell or have a cold or sniffle, stay home.
When visiting a local park, there may be others present. By all means be courteous, but stay at least 2-3 metres back from them.
Take soap and a water bottle with you. Wash hands before setting out and immediately on return. Use the water bottle to rinse your hands. Air dry your hands before driving home.
Your hands are the most likely part of the body to pick up viruses. If contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth and make you sick.
We plan to provide maps and courses in lots of areas in Melbourne. Pick one near you, one that looks interesting or one that looks fun.
Once you've selected a map/challenge, just download a PDF copy of the map. Then print it yourself or take it to Officeworks (B&W 10 cents, colour 70 cents).
Head to the start location - shown on the map as a triangle. When ready, start your watch/GPS and get going. Go fast or take the scenic route - your choice!
At the moment, we have an online presence in Facebook. Soon, we'll provide a gateway here so you can upload your result to our LeaderBoards and automatically export to sporting websites such as Strava.
