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.

Uringa’s 50th Anniversary Lunch

Lunch at the Palace Hotel, Mortlake, on Sunday, March 3rd, saw many long term Uringans together with some newer members celebrate the club’s anniversary.

Uringa Orienteers was formed in May 1974 to share the load of supporting orienteering in southern Sydney with Kareelah Orienteering Club.  

(Kareelah was founded to serve the southern Sydney suburbs in 1972 as NSW’s second orienteering club, while Bennelong Occasional Orienteers, founded in 1971, served the northern suburbs).   

Dave Lotty was elected inaugural president and continued in that role to 1986 (today he continues serving the club as Treasurer). 

Subsequent club presidents were Dick Ogilvie (1987-1990), Rollin Burford (1991-1992), Keith Richardson (1993-1994), Terry Murphy (1995-1998), Lisa Lampe (2000-2002), Matt Peters (2003-2007), Ron Pallas (2008-2010), Linda Sesta (2011-2016), Jim Mackay (2017-2018), Anthony Nolan (2019-present).

[Five former club presidents and the current president were present. Many of the others present are listed for one or more club officer/director/committee roles, and for a few years.]
