NSW – New South Wales – Sydney, Mittagong, Orange, Dubbo, Newcastle, Coffs Harbour
Orienteering NSW are not currently looking for a scholar over the Australian winter months in 2017.
New South Wales is Australia’s largest state by population, and its capital Sydney is home to 5 million people. Some of NSW’s attractions are the surfing beaches, the annual New Year’s Eve fireworks and Australia’s unique flora and fauna.
There are 14 orienteering clubs across the state, and the terrain ranges from world-class granite to complex spur-gully to gold mining to coastal scrub and open schlerophyll forests. NSW hosted JWOC in 2007.
The scholar will have access to additional paid work opportunities through sprint mapping, coaching in schools, and other coaching avenues.
The scholar will stay with local orienteering families. This position offers a wonderful opportunity to experience Australia beyond the tourism brochures. For more information, see here.
