Winter Series

OWA's primary series of bush orienteering events are held most Sunday mornings from May to September in various locations. In WA, orienteering is held mostly in open bush areas with contour and rock features, with some events held in open farmland areas with more complex rock detail.

All events (including the state orienteering league and state championships) are open to the general public as well as members. While pre-entry is available for some events, participants are always able to enter on the day. Courses range in distance from 2 - 12km, and in navigational difficulty from very easy to hard.

Instructors are  available at each event to guide newcomers through the registration process and help you get started on the right course for your level of ability and fitness.  Families and groups are welcome.
