Maps are provided here to encourage the sport of orienteering. They are in pdf format. We have a big collection with courses on, some of which have a permanent course marked by posts or plaques, and others which are virtual courses. This list contains just the maps, so you can plan your own course. They are in pdf format.

If you are going to print maps for a group you'll want to put circles and numbers on these maps. Free software to do this is called Purple Pen. You can download it here.

If you are interested in an area not on this list, please look in Virtual Courses, or contact This page was first assembled by and was last updated on 3 May 20 (c) Orienteering Hutt Valley.
