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.

Other events require pre-entry and for that you need to know about (and register with) Eventor - read the Eventor FAQ.


Arpad Kocsik appointed OA GM

Congratulations to Garingal member Arpad Kocsik who has been appointed general manager of Orienteering Australia.

Arpad comes from Hungary with strong ties to orienteering as an active competitor, event organiser, club secretary and has worked closely with the Hungarian federation until three years ago as Marketing and Communications officer promoting our sport in all of its variations.

You might have noticed him in action as commentator at several major events in NSW such as last year’s NSW Championships. He has been a Level 0 coach with ONSW teaching the basics and tricks of orienteering to students throughout Sydney for the past two years and is eager to jump into the GM’s seat.

Árpád joins OA with fresh enthusiasm and a rare combination of skills that derive from a legal background and a lifelong attachment to orienteering. 

“In these hard and trying times in so many aspects of our lives and around the globe, I join the team with excitement, hoping to provide the necessary know-how and help take orienteering “Down Under” to new horizons and making it stronger. Thank you all for the warm welcome. It is great to be here,” says Árpád about his appointment.
