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.

Want to enter an event? You can see what's on by looking at the Coming Events at left or by going to the Event Calendar. Some events are enter on the day - you just turn up and register at the start. Other events require pre-entry and for that you need to know about (and register with) Eventor - read the Eventor FAQ.


Orienteers of the Year 2023

The NSW State League finished in September, and the 2023 OY badges (1st, 2nd, 3rd) are now being distributed to club.

Names of the 2023 Orienteers of the Year (first place in each A class) are published at https://onsw.asn.au/current-nsw-champions.

Full Eventor NSW State League Series results - 2023 NSW State League Pointscore  

The Orienteer of Year competition was established in the 1970s, announced by then newsletter editor Toy Martin: 

The OA of New South Wales has decided to begin the point score [for Orienteer of the Year] with the Heathcote event. This point system will be a good indicator of ability and consistency and will be a valuable reference for both team selectors and referees in ‘who’s better’ arguments. The leader in the point score at the conclusion of the association year – March 31st – will be declared ‘Orienteer of the Year’. Points will be allocated for all events sanctioned by the association.

The rules and timing have evolved a bit over the last 50 years!

How did your club fare this year? It’s something to celebrate!
