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.

Central West Orienteering

Terrific technical terrain met competitors at Wyangala Waters for State League 5 – a middle distance event hosted by Western and Hills Orienteers.

Recent rain made the rocks slippery and there are lots of rocks! But the full dam and steep banks created a picturesque setting.

Rebecca George (BF) set wonderful courses with Sheralee Bailey (BN) doing the controlling. 

The tightest competition came in both 20A classes, where Sam Woolford (BB) edged out Alvin Craig (NC) by a mere 31s and Eszter Kocsik (GO) pipped rising star Erika Enderby (NC) by 39s.

The following day, Goldseekers organised a long distance event in Roseberg SF.

James Lithgow’s (GO) courses used the Southern and Western parts of Roseberg, which haven’t seen any orienteering competition in over 15 years.

The spur gully terrain with large rocks scattered all over the place makes for a wonderful orienteering playground.

It can be easy for times to blow out in a long distance event but only 2s separated Newcastle clubmates Martina Craig  and Jennifer Enderby in W50A!

In 21A Rebecca George, fresh off setting the day before won. Martin Dent up from Canberra was the best in M21A.
