Who are we?

Nillumbik Emus is one of the larger and more active orienteering clubs in Victoria. Nillumbik Emus is affiliated with the Orienteering Victoria (OV), and we take our turn to organise Street, Bush and Mountain Bike orienteering events.

We welcome individuals and families; keen competitors and people who simply enjoy the challenge of improving their fitness and navigational skills. We organise foot and mountain bike orienteering events in attractive forest areas.

There is also a strong focus on Park&Street Orienteering and many members are active Rogainers. Coaching is available for newcomers. We get together at events and keep in touch through a regular club newsletter and social gatherings. The emu logo features on club clothing.

Our uniform is emerald green and royal blue with an emu logo.  We have a range of clothing and subsidise the cost of the club T-shirts and running singlets.

Membership of the club is broadly based with members from all parts of metropolitan Melbourne and regional areas. All events are suitable for newcomers of all ages.

Our website is designed for orienteers of all ages and experience to

1. Newcomers who want to know more about orienteering

2. Orienteers and prospective members who want to know more about the club

3. Members looking for information about the club program other club news
