Orienteering and rogaining policy and procedures

This policy provides guidance on orienteering and rogaining events in parks managed by OEH.

Groups seeking permission for orienteering and rogaining events should provide information on the following:

  • an identifiable, accountable and appropriately insured organiser (whether an individual, group or association)
  • an identified route or area of operation, and
  • a discrete short-term time frame (e.g. over one weekend).

Orienteering and rogaining events are not permitted in wilderness areas, nature reserves, Aboriginal areas and historic sites or in areas where a plan of management clearly prohibits orienteering or rogaining. Event organisers are advised to contact the relevant park office early in the planning process prior to submitting any formal application.
