WHO are we?

We are an orienteering club based in the western part of Sydney, but membership is not limited to the region.

WHO orienteers compete in events at all levels: local, metropolitan, state, national and international

What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is a map running sport.

Orienteers start on their course with a map in hand and navigate their way through a series of check points making route choices on the way. Their object is to achieve fastest time in their class.

Courses are set for every level of map runner, from beginners to experts and for all age grades from 10 year olds to elite map runners and seniors. There are "Orienteer of the Year" awards for each age grade
