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.

2023 Metro League Final Wrap

Bennelong were the big winners after a dramatic final day in the MetrO League at St Ives on Sunday. BN won the Divn 4 and 5 finals and finished first in Divn 6 to sweep the three lowest grades. Big Foot, buoyed by the return from overseas of some big guns, downed Garingal in the Divn 2 final. The Lizard people could not find the clean fast runs needed, also losing the Divn 3 final to SHOO-IKO along with Divn 4 to Bennelong. Garingal already had Divn 1 sewn up and finished the year undefeated after accounting for hosts Big Foot. 

Three WHO members scooped the individual medals for most points across the six rounds, and juniors won four of those medals. 

Congratulations to our 2023 ML champions: 

Div 1 Garingal. Indiv - Seth Sweeney (WH)

Div 2 Big Foot. Indiv - Lee Coady (WH)

Div 3 SHOO-IKO. Indiv - Callum Waland (KNOX) 

Div 4 Bennelong. Indiv - Merryn Horrocks (GO)

Div 5 Bennelong. Indiv - Shay Sweeney (WH)

Div 6 Bennelong. Indiv - Euan Shedden (SH)

The ML web page has been updated with all results and links. A big thank you to all setters, controllers, organisers, participants and club captains for another great year.
