Kia Ora and welcome! We invite you to come and explore new maps and untraversed terrain around fascinating Oamaru in the beautiful Waitaki District of New Zealand.
Make a holiday of it, plan an adventure, and explore the South Island.
Peninsula and Plains Orienteers are excited to be able to offer three new maps around Oamaru for the 2019 NZ Orienteering Championships in a part of New Zealand that has rarely been mapped or used for orienteering before, and to supplement them with an area first used for Oceania in 2009 with the quirky but cute name of “Humpy Bumpy” near Earthquakes for the relay.
The event offers four days of intensely detailed areas with guaranteed tests of your navigational prowess and plenty of challenges in new terrain.
