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.

2023 Hunter Valley Championships

2023 Hunter Valley Championships  - Orienteering Fun for everyone this Sunday only 90 to 100 mins north of Sydney and the weather looks good!

As well as being the last event in the club’s Newcastle Orienteer of the Year series, this Sunday’s event at Kitchener (3km south of Cessnock, 22 minutes from the M1) is also the 2023 Hunter Valleys Championships. The “Kitchley Green” map is typical Lower Hunter spur-gully terrain which mapper and course setter Denis Lyons describes as having “good detail in the gullies and watercourses which run off the steeper section of the map”.

Seven courses are on offer - Very Easy (2.0km) , Easy (2.4km) , two Moderate (2.1km & 3.1km) and three Hard (3.2km, 5.5km & 7.1km) - with a range of championship age classes from 12 up to 80+. 

An opportunity for some late season quality orienteering or a good warm up for those heading to WA for the Kambarang Carnival. Pre-entry before the day is preferred and will ensure a map for your chosen course but EOD will be available for all courses (subject to map availability).
