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.


Anna Fitzgerald wins Course Setter of the Year

Goldseekers elite Anna Fitzgerald has won the annual Course Setter of the Year award for her courses at Gumble on the last day of the national Easter carnival.

Anna provided a heady contrast: fast open, rocky farmland for the first half of her courses - then sent everyone plunging back into the intricate granite that had proven so difficult the previous day.

It's the first time in seven years the award has gone to a 'full length' bush event, after being dominated by Sprint setters in recent times.

Here are some of the comments from participants:

"Perfect level of difficulty and length for the last day of the Easter weekend."

"This was a terrific course. There was heaps of variety and I finished completely stuffed after running/walking hard throughout."

"Great use of the yellow and then green areas, good hard controls, great use of direction and length change and making people look for the easy way.  

"A really well set course that made for exciting spectating and tactical racing - perfect for a chasing start."

Congratulations Anna!
