capital O is an orienteering activity associated with the 2013 Australian Championships Carnival and is proudly supported by the ACT Government Community Centenary Initiatives Fund. You are invited to take a photo and map tour of Canberra’s parliamentary triangle. You will be given a detailed map of the Parliamentary triangle and surrounding area; the map will have a series of checkpoints, with the corresponding number of photos, each with a unique code. The goal is to visit each checkpoint, and match the location with the corresponding photo. You may start wherever you like and, with no time limit, you can take as long as you like to enjoy the sights.
