Your fun is to head out and navigate to the numbered points in your town and match the photo with the numbered pin.

Please share your efforts with photos and comments on social media mentioning @ELOutdoorEd (twitter/ Instagram/ Facebook)

The courses and photos are able to be viewed online. Please only print if absolutely necessary and you are able to.

We look forward to sharing your stories of discovering your town through a little bit of physical activity.

All of these courses have been developed by DR – a wonderful volunteer in Outdoor Learning and a fantastic orienteering coach.
