We are an orienteering club based in Auckland, New Zealand. Most of our competitions and trainings are held in Woodhill / Riverhead Forest. From absolute beginners to world champions, we support anyone wanting to get started in the sport of orienteering or make it on the world stage.

Our Mission

  • To promote, encourage and develop the sport of orienteering in North and West Auckland.
  • To maintain appropriate links with the Auckland Orienteering Association (AOA) and the New Zealand Orienteering Federation (NZOF).
  • To organise orienteering events within the Auckland Region, and within other geographical areas after consultation with other orienteering clubs or regional orienteering associations.
  • To ensure that orienteering events organised by the Club follow such rules of competition as published by the NZOF.
  • To encourage, support and train members for the sport of orienteering. 

Access to Private Land

Most of our orienteering events take place on private land. North West Orienteering Club does not support or condone any access to private land outside of organised events, unless the access has been authorised in advance by the land owner.
