CBD-gaine - Melbourne CBD - Sunday 3rd March 2019

Start 10:00 am      Finish 2:00 pm 

We kick off the year with a 4hr CBD-gaine starting from inner city Melbourne. With a focus on fun, finding new parts of the city and introducing friends to Rogaining this will be a fast scoring event. Walk, run or public transport around inner city of Melbourne.
This year will include some close scoring opportunities around Melbourne’s amazing sports precinct as well as maximising the green spaces around the Yarra.

A perfect event for novices and good fun for those who have done it all before. We have set checkpoints on as many interesting points of history, parks, architecture and art as we could. For families all 100 point checkpoints will be placed at great playgrounds!!

No post event catering however there are plenty of opportunities for top quality coffee, a taste of Melbourne cuisine or a quick stop at a convenience store to refuel.


Powlett Reserve,
Albert Street, East Melbourne


The course uses question and multiple choice answer checkpoints. The questions are intended to confirm your visit to the checkpoint and not test your IQ. Checkpoints are set on points of interest as much as possible. Find the location on the Map then find the answer to the question matching a multiple choice answer and marking off A, B, C or D on you answer sheet.
This event is suitable of all levels of walking, running, pram and baby backpack teams. There is no cycling (Cyclogaine) However using Public Transport is allowed. Bring your myki as you must pay to use public transport outside of the free tram zone. Note that the hash house is outside of the free tram zone.
