About Us

Goldseekers Orienteering Club is based in Orange in the beautiful Central Tablelands area of New South Wales.  We run events in bushland areas around Orange - usually the first Sunday - in the months of March thru October or November, when it's not so hot. 

Early in the year - February/March - we run some simpler style events in the urban areas of Orange to let newcomers get an idea of what orienteering is all about.

If you are in our area and want to find out about orienteering come to one of our events.  Bring the family - it suits all ages - and we'll show you how to get started.

Check our Events Pages for dates and locations of our events.  Click 'Goldseekers Territory' in box at right to see the areas we use.

We are called Goldseekers because in our sport of orienteering we are looking to win 'gold' and also the first payable gold deposits in Australia were discovered just outside Orange around 1850.

We are a nice bunch of people, a mixture of young and old, some are highly competitive while others take a more relaxed approach!

Drop us an email to say hello.  We would love to hear from you.


Membership

On becoming a member you will be accepted as such at any NSW club events.

Family, Senior and Junior memberships cover full ONSW membership, a subscription to the national magazine "The Australian Orienteer", ONSW newsletters and event programs and qualification for entry to State and National Championships.
