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.

2022 Course Setter of the Year

This annual Award (also known as the Graeme Mitchell Trophy) is awarded on the basis of competitor voting via an online survey.

Competitors in the NSW State League Series selected Terry Bluett (Bennelong Northside Orienteers) as Course Setter of the Year for his NSW Middle Distance Championships courses set on the Noahs Ark Ridge map in a field of seventeen events across 2022. Terry was also chosen for the award in 2008.

2022 President’s Award

The President’s Award is presented annually to a member or members for outstanding service to orienteering in NSW.

The ONSW 2022 Junior Development Team (led by Helen O’Callaghan (Bush ‘n’ Beach Orienteers), Jenny Enderby and Bjorn Mella (both Newcastle Orienteers) and the large support team of parents and juniors behind the scenes received the 2022 President’s Award. The commitment and work of this team of supporters is a substantial contribution to encouraging growth in participation at the junior level. 2022 saw NSW juniors well represented both in the formally selected NSW Schools Team (the Carbines) and in participation in the Junior Development Team.
