Welcome to Newcastle Orienteering Club

Orienteering is a competitive or non-competitive recreational activity in which participants use a detailed map (and usually a compass) to navigate between checkpoints (known as “controls”) along an unfamiliar course. If you like a mental and physical challenge and exploring the outdoors, orienteering is the sport for you!

Sunday 28 May
Bush Series NOY 4 event has been postponed and replaced with a minor event at Raymond Terrace.
After unsuccessful attempts to reach agreement with the land holders for two different locations for NOY 4 we have run out of time to find an alternative. It is hoped that we can plan another NOY event for later in the year. 
Sunday's event will now be a training and 'Come And Try It' event at Boomerang Park Raymond Terrace.
You are encouraged to bring along someone who would like to try orienteering. Entry will be free for first timers.
