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.


Covid July 2022 Update

All restrictions on community sport have been lifted. See NSW Government.

However, as COVID 19 infection rates surge in the community event organisers are encouraged to continue to implement COVID 19 safety measures at orienteering events including:

  • excluding people who are sick, or have tested positive for COVID 19 or are otherwise required to isolate
  • encouraging volunteers and spectators wear masks if they are not able to physically distance. This includes volunteers at download stations (outdoors and indoors).
  • reducing opportunities for spreading infection by:
    • providing hand sanitiser for use by competitors before and after the event
    • encouraging social distancing where possible
    • limiting Enter On the Day (EOD) entries by encouraging pre-entries
    • enabling EOD entries via eventor on the day
    • using contactless systems for EOD payment
    • publishing results online.  

The Chief Health Officer has recommended that masks be worn for any indoor activities where attendees cannot physically distance. This may apply to club meetings and workshops. See https://www.health.gov.au/news/press-conference-with-chief-medical-officer-paul-kelly-and-minister-mark-butler

Sample COVID 19 Safety Plan

Whilst there is no longer a NSW Government requirement for a COVID 19 Safety Plan for outdoor sporting events clubs should consider maintaining a plan and/or guidance for event organisers to follow to keep orienteers and their families and friends safe. An updated sample COVID-19 Safety Plan for Minor Orienteering Events is now available.

COVID-19 safety for community sport

To help sport clubs and associations continue to welcome members and visitors in a COVID safe way NSW Office of Sport has produced a communication toolkit assist clubs to convey COVID 19 safety messages to their sporting community. It includes tailorable content including newsletter/web copy, social media assets and posters.

Cancellation policies relating to COVID 19

Clubs are encouraged to fully refund entry fees for those entrants who are unable to attend an event due to genuine COVID-related concerns.
