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.


2022 MetrO League 4

Some of our sub-juniors - still in primary school - have been tearing it up in the Sydney MetrO League.

Division 6 was introduced in 2020 to be an introduction to bush orienteering for younger kids and older newcomers. The standard is Easy, with later controls on the course on the easy side of Moderate.

WHO 10-year-olds Shay Sweeney and Justine de Remy de Courcelles are leading the individual standings in Div 6, while team-mates Levi Coady (8) and Thomas Spencer (12) are also doing really well.

For ladder leaders Garingal Blue Tongues, Tania Horrocks (11) made up for a mispunch last round with 9 points on Sunday at Wianamatta in round 4. Her team is almost assured of the trophy.

Bennelong Northside don't have a team in Div 6 but that doesn't stop Max Povah, aged 8 who went out on his own for the first time!

Max caught up to ML co-ordinator Ian Jessup late in their runs on Sunday and proudly said "I am doing this all by myself!"

With one round left before the finals, in Divn 1 it will be a Big Foot-Garingal final regardless of the results at Smiths Creek. Big Foot are also into the Divn 2 final, with Bennelong needing a win against the GO Frill Necks to join them.

The Feet also lead Divn 3 but four teams are on four points so it's anyone's race.

Unbeaten Bennelong look hot favourites in Divns 4 and 5. 

See the ML web page (link) for all the results. Thanks to WHO for a lovely day out at Wianamatta.
