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.

NSW Ski O champs a hit

Ski orienteering in Australia? Only a Swede could think it possible!

Big Foot's master-of-all-trades Patrik Gunnarsson conducted the inaugural NSW Ski-O championships at Perisher on Sunday and attracted 24 hardy souls who braved a maximum temperature of 0.2C.

The event was a novel finale to Perisher's Cross-Country Week and drew competitors from the ACT, NSW, South Australia and even Western Australia.

"As a wilderness back country skier I usually avoid civilisation as much as possible," said David Poland from ACT club Bushflyers.

"But this event proved to be an exhilarating 107 minutes. I barely noticed the weather.  I have never enjoyed Perisher so much. The snow was perfect for cutting corners. Looking forward to the second Sunday in August next year." 

Last year Patrik and Penrith-based Goldseeker Jason Rutkowski had a trial run and were convinced a proper Ski-O event was merited. 

Thankfully the cold weather appeared just in time after a relatively mild winter. And while the powder was ideal, there were still natural forces conspiring.

"I skated my butt off, but the wind was stronger and kept sending me backwards!," reports Jason. "The event was great and, combined with the help from the ski club, was executed perfectly."

We thank Patrik and his helpers for this fantastic innovation and look forward to the event growing. Results and splits are now up, and the map from the Long course. Read Patrik's report and check out some pics.
