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.

2021 NSW Community Sports Awards Presentations

Congratulations to Basil and Jean Baldwin from Goldseekers who were officially presented with their Sport NSW award last Thursday at Bankwest Stadium for Distinguished Long Service.

Carolyn Campbell, Sport NSW Chairperson, congratulated the finalists and award winners for their exceptional achievements and also emphasised the voluntary dedication that over 500,000 people commit to make NSW community sport the best it can be.

“Community sport has an unrivalled ability to transcend culture, ability and background and to bring people together… NSW would not be able to enjoy the activities they love without the dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers we celebrate tonight,” Ms Campbell mentioned.

“While COVID-19 has impacted our lives in so many ways over the past 12 months, the role of community sport has been more vital than ever, helping restore and uphold the physical and mental health of the NSW community,” added Ms Campbell.

For nearly 50 years, Basil and Jean have organised, coached, course-set and provided club leadership in orienteering. They have been key in establishing orienteering as a community sport for all ages and provide pathways to elite competition. Basil has consistently been the sport’s technical backbone, has won numerous State and National Championships and both Basil and Jean have represented Australia at the Oceania Championships. Jean was awarded an Australia Day medal in 1994 as Senior Sportsperson of the Year and has twice been a finalist in the Orange Sportsperson of the Year awards.
