Manning Park, Spearwood

Manning Park offers a great opportunity to (re)introduce yourself to a bit of bush orienteering in a convenient metropolitan location. A range of courses from the beginner level through to the more advanced have been set using the lake, park and the ridge of coastal bushland with its multitude of tracks crisscrossing it.

The range of courses offer something for everyone - regardless of age, orienteering experience or fitness level. For those new to orienteering, coaches/instructors will be on hand to get you started.
