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.

Want to enter an event? You can see what's on by looking at the Coming Events at left or by going to the Event Calendar. Some events are enter on the day - you just turn up and register at the start. Other events require pre-entry and for that you need to know about (and register with) Eventor - read the Eventor FAQ.

Sprint Weekend Results

A number of ONSW members collaborated to produce a movie of the Female and Male Knockout Finals at the recent Sydney Sprint Weekend. 

It’s a fantastic insight into what it’s like to be competing at the elite level. 

There were 11 cameras on the course, including GoPro action from Sam Woolford (competing in the final), Oscar Mella & Duncan Currie.

The footage was collated and produced by Richard Pattison & Melissa Thomas.

The movies are available on YouTube:



ONSW would like to recognise Mark Shingler and his incredible team of volunteers who put together the Sydney Sprint Weekend 2023!

Results for the event can be found here Sydney Sprint Weekend
