Welcome to Orienteering NSW

Orienteering is a sport that challenges both the body and the mind. It's also loads of fun!

The aim is to use a special orienteering map to navigate your way around a course and visit marked check points along the way. You choose a course that suits your age and experience and proceed at your own pace: walk, jog or run. It is a race but you decide if you want to just race yourself or be the next world champion! The course may take you through urban areas, parks, schools, farmland or forests.

Events are conducted weekly across NSW and beginners are welcome at all events.

Want to enter an event? You can see what's on by looking at the Coming Events at left or by going to the Event Calendar. Some events are enter on the day - you just turn up and register at the start. Other events require pre-entry and for that you need to know about (and register with) Eventor - read the Eventor FAQ.

2022 MetrO League 1

Other Division winners were: Hamish Mackie, Dave Dorling, Kieran Joseph, Katherine Cameron and John Bulman. 

All the results and links are on the ML web page.

Entries open for inaugural Port Macquarie SL

We are delighted to announce entries are now open for the long-awaited and much delayed Port Macquarie State League weekend!

These are the first major events for our newest club, Hastings Orienteering Group.

If you entered last year before the COVID postponement, please check that your age class in Eventor is correct for 2022.

There will be a Sprint on Saturday afternoon at Mackillop College, and a Middle Distance on Sunday morning in Broken Bago State Forest.

ONSW says a big thank you to our Newcastle club for all the mentoring work they have done to prepare the HOGs for this great occasion.

We'll also be having a junior squad camp leading into the SL weekend - stay tuned for details.
