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.


40 glorious years of orienteering in Centennial Park, Sydney

Starters at Metro #4The Metroleague, Junior League and Come and Try It event at Centennial Park on Sunday was a big event but not just because of the numbers of orienteers out enjoying the sunshine.  This past weekend marked 40 years of orienteering in Centennial ParkDave Lotty, who has mapped all the 14 editions of the map, was on hand to show people the metamorphosis from simple black and white map to the sophisticated 6 colour map we use today. 

Celebrating 40yrs in Centennial ParkUringa Orienteers celebrated with a little champagne, and a fabulous cake which came complete with replica map in icing, created by President Linda Sesta's sister-in-law, Rose, and enthusiastically sliced into by the growing Uringa junior contingent.

As part of our continuing partnership with Centennial Parklands, Linda and Barbara Hill (ONSW Promotions Director) have been working with Centennial Parkland management to create a permanent orienteering course; Barbara showed off the new pack of map and instructions that will be available from the Parklands office later in July.
