Orienteering to Feature on TV
Permanent orienteering courses in park and urban environments featured on Channel 7 Queensland’s lifestyle program The Great South East on Sunday 11 September.

In June, Orienteering Queensland president, James Mitchell, together with Emily Cantwell, filmed a segment in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens showing presenter, Richard Champion, the permanent course there which involves answering questions at each control site. There are a number of permanent courses in various parks in and around Brisbane and people are able to download the maps and questions from the OQ website and do the course at their leisure.

The story is due to be repeated nationally on Saturday 17 September on 7 Two at 11.30am.
