Who are we?

Enoggeroos Orienteering Club has been active in the Brisbane region for over 35 years. Originally formed with a nucleus of members from the Enoggera area, it has expanded to take in most of the areas north of the Brisbane River up to Caboolture, and out to Redcliffe. However the majority of our membership still comes from north-western areas of Brisbane. Although varying slightly from year to year, our membership numbers remain at approximately 70. These consist of individual and family membership, with ages ranging from 5 to 85 years young. Enoggeroos prides itself on being a friendly club which welcomes beginners and family groups. The focus is on ensuring members and especially newcomers have a great time.

What is Orienteering?

Orienteering often called the 'Thought Sport' or 'Cunning Running' is a sport for all ages, with courses available for the under 10's to the over 80's, so people of all abilities are able to participate. You get a map with your course drawn on it. A course is made up of a number of controls (flags) numbered from one to about thirteen. With your map to guide you, you have to find each control in numerical order and record, SI sticks used mainly, occasionally at an event you will use a punch on a card.  For some, orienteering is a competitive sport. For many, it's a fun recreational activity that friends or the whole family can enjoy together. You choose the pace!

Events are held most Sundays during the cooler months throughout the South-East areas surrounding Brisbane in both bushland and parks. Evening events are also popular and are generally run throughout suburban streets. Generally, you can do orienteering on Tuesday/Wednesday Nights, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday somewhere in Brisbane/Qld! Those new to the sport are most welcome to participate in any of the events listed on the events calendar and we provide information on basic map reading and navigational skills at all events. Walk or run with foot orienteering, ride a bike with mountain bike orienteering. Also, you can even participate in orienteering events and competitions in other states, territories and countries! Simply google "orienteering" and the state to see upcoming events in the area, some you need to register for, others just turn up in the suggested time. After the "event" most find it interesting to view the results to see where you placed in your category! Keep your map and think about how you may have perhaps gone on a different route to improve on your time or maybe ask someone after the event for suggestions
