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.

Bennelong Northside win Club of the Year

It was a double celebration on Friday night as Bennelong Northside were awarded Club of the Year at their 50th anniversary dinner.

Australia's first constituted club formed in December 1971, and around 80 people were at Balgowlah RSL to celebrate the milestone.

Little did the attendees know they were also taking out the Club of the Year award for the first time since it was introduced in 1994.

Pictured here is Bennelong president Terry Bluett receiving the perpetual trophy from ONSW president Robyn Pallas.

Bennelong co-hosted a superb Easter carnival at Orange and Molong, with demanding courses on challenging Gumble terrain, and a brilliant new granite map - Noah's Ark Ridge.

They had to do all the leg work (extensive landowner negotiations, setting, checking and tagging sites etc) twice due to covid interruptions.

The 50th dinner brought together many past presidents. Founding members of BOO and NOSH (clubs which merged to form Bennelong Northside) told how they started in orienteering and what has kept them in the sport for so long.

A big thank you to dinner organisers Linda Mandin and Katherine Cameron, to MC Julian Ledger, to Sharon Lambert for tracking down past members, Peter Hopper for collating the history, and Janet Dawkins for the fascinating historical display.

The rest of the ONSW major awards will be handed out during the Xmas 5-Days carnival in the Southern Highlands.
