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.

Garingal Ultrasprint

Ultrasprint orienteering returned to Beauchamp Park in Sydney last Sunday, 16th July 2023 

Ultrasprint is a short, sharp, furious & loads of fun. Participants have a two-and-a-half-hour window to complete 3 courses each approximately 1km. While the format sounds simple enough complexity lies in the fact that there were more than 60 controls in an area. There is a further twist that there is a maze with 3 controls per maze per course. No control descriptions, the position of the control on the ground is shown by a pink dot in the control circle on the map. Mispunch means a 30 second penalty.

Results are here in Eventor / Thanks to course setters and Garingal.
