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.

Moonlight Madness is on Wednesday with Vivid

Moonlight Madness Vivid 2023 - is on Wednesday with Warwick Selby and Andrew Huxley from Garingal club hosting us at Anderson Park, Clark Road, Kirribilli.

Beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 

Please enter online in Eventor or on the day.

Using the same 30-control score course format as the popular Sydney Summer Series, Moonlight Madness is conducted in Sydney locations on the Wednesday of the month nearest the full moon.

You'll need a torch or headlamp, and courses are generally shorter than SSS to allow for the slower navigation after dark. Bush controls are located on tracks for safety.

The start window is 5.30-7pm and we are using SportIdent for all events.

Not to mention, all the world's elites say that orienteering at night improves your skills!
