Carnival Overview

All the signs are there for a great carnival in three phases:

On behalf of the International Orienteering Federation, Orienteering ACT is proud to be organising the 2019 edition of the Oceania Orienteering Championships and associated events. This time we will be joining with our NSW and Victorian O-colleagues to host a carnival of events in the A41 Olympic Highway corridor. Expect a variety of challenging terrains west of Australia’s Great Dividing Range and spread between the local government districts of two of our generous sponsors, the Councils of the Cities of Wagga Wagga and Wangaratta.

In addition to the usual sprint, middle, long distance and relay formats, the carnival will combine the Oceania Orienteering Championships with the Australian Championships long distance and relay events, and the Australian Schools Championships 2019. You’re invited to come and participate in the full range of events on offer while enjoying the sunshine, nature and culture (and more than the odd drop of wine at some of the best wineries) that Australia’s Riverina and Rutherglen regions have to offer. Links to some of the attractions of the region are attached below to help you start planning your O-tinerary now.

Keep an eye on this website for more details over coming months, but in the meantime plan to hit the road to Australia’s green heartland, enjoy the wide blue skies and experience Orienteering The Olympic Way.
