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.

He lived an extraordinary life, 55 years married, 6 children and 15 grandkids. 

Funeral is Wednesday, 15th November at 11am at Our Lady Star of the Sea, Terrigal.

He was very active in the Waggaroos club during its formative years joining in 1976, about a year after the club was formed in 1975.
