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.

2022 Rebel NSW Champions of Sport Ceremony

Nea Shingler Takes Orienteering to the 2022 Rebel NSW Champions of Sport Ceremony

Nea Shingler was one of five very high calibre finalists for Young Athlete of the Year. At 17 Nea is the youngest ever Australian to compete at the World Orienteering Championships and one of only a handful who have been selected for both the WOC and Junior WOC. Competition for the award was intense, with the winner Valentino Guseli, a 16 year old snowboarder who had competed in the Beijing Winter Olympics and also won World Cup medals.

Nea says of the night: ‘The 2022 Rebel NSW Champions of Sport ceremony was held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney, the venue was magnificent with views of Darling Harbour. I had such an enjoyable night, with delicious food, special shoutout to the dessert! It was so interesting and inspiring to see all the sport champions, learning about their various achievements. I am so honoured to be nominated and selected as a finalist, I think it's fantastic that orienteering was recognised and hopefully it can help to raise its profile.’

‘Orienteering NSW was thrilled that Nea Shingler was a finalist, not only for Nea but for the profile of Orienteering. What a great night was had by all who attended this ceremony. It was a great pleasure to accompany our finalist for Young Athlete of the Year’ said ONSW President Robyn Pallas.
