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 Junior Participation Diary Awards Delivered

Bennelong North, Goldseekers, Newcastle, Southern Highlands, Uringa, Wagga & Riverina, Western & Hills have, or will be, presenting their enthusiastic juniors with awards achieved through the 2023 Junior Diary Participation Awards program.

The 2023 total of awards was slightly down: 46 in 2023 (compared with 49 in 2022): 16 Wattle, 2 Banksia, 28 Waratah.

The Junior Diary program was initiated many years ago by Sue Davis, continued by Lyn Malmgron, then Kristie Carroll, with Wendy McConaghy the current coordinator.

Participating juniors record points for each eligible event or training activity.

Once a paper diary, the participation diary is now made available each year in a spreadsheet format.

Participations can be logged on a computer, or the sheets of the diary printed out for more traditional record-keeping.

For more information see webpage.

Thanks to the 2023 ONSW Junior Participation Diary Awards Team: Wendy McConaghy, Mary Jane Mahony and Peter McConaghy. Administration Officer John Murray ensured distribution of awards to clubs.
