Welcome to Eureka!
Eureka Orienteers Run and Ride the Country!
Eureka Orienteers is a Ballarat-based recreation and sports club, responsible for the organisation and promotion of orienteering in central Western Victoria. Orienteering is a family of outdoor sports that involves navigating with a map around a set course, defined by a sequence of control points, in a timed race against the clock.
Orienteering is unique in that everyone involved at an event can participate or compete on exactly the same maps and terrain. From rank beginners, to world-class elite athletes, to family groups, and nature-loving bushwalkers. Participant ages typically range from under 5, through to 95 plus, and events cater for all ages and levels of fitness, maturity and experience. Orienteering develops skills in navigation, self-confidence, self-reliance and environmental appreciation, which are all great life skills to develop.
This website is here to provide information for members and visitors alike. Those new to the sport should start by reading the Eureka Newcomers page.
