The Western Melbourne Orienteering Series has several series through the year on Tuesday evenings in the western suburbs of Melbourne, with this event on Tuesday, 23 December 2014.
The Western Series offers a diverse and arguably unique range of venues, from the elegance of Albert Park, Essendon and Williamstown right through to the vibrant newer suburbs in the outer west. It embraces the charming inner suburbs such as the old towns of Newport and Footscray. Many events border the water's edge, the Maribyrnong and Yarra River, and the Bay at Port Melbourne.
Park and Street Orienteering offers an excellent opportunity for discovering all of these places. Many of the river valleys can be surprisingly steep and might require more thoughtful route choices. But generally, Melbourne's West embraces comparatively flat terrain.
