Location
Dandenong Ranges where the bush is thick so this event is set on Tracks in Bush.  The Dandenong Ranges has many tracks and pockets of housing.   There will be Coffee shops on course and therefore fewer water checkpoints.   

Rogaine on the Ranges will be held in the Dandenong Ranges National Park including the townships of Olinda, Sassafras, Kalorama & Mount Dandenong. Being so close to Melbourne and in a popular national park, this event will be a little different to a standard bush Rogaine. Competitors will only be allowed on the marked tracks, similar to a metrogaine, but in the bush.

But don’t let that fool you, there will be plenty of difficult route choices (just because a checkpoint is near another doesn’t mean its close when limited to tracks) and significant elevation variation. There will be plenty of high points at the far end of the course if you can endure the necessary 800m of uphill and cover over 30 km to return within the 6 hour event.

Families with younger children will find plenty of checkpoints near the HH and most tracks are wide enough for a pusher. Possible destinations include dragons nests and big boulders, and hopefully the new adventure playground near Olinda will be complete in time. For those looking to enjoy the bush, the vegetation includes fern gullies, towering mountain ash, stands of poplars, sequoias & oaks, along with traditional eucalypt forest. If stopping for a café lunch is your style, Olinda township, Kalorama and Sky High are each about 7km from the HH. Magnificent views can be had across Melbourne collecting checkpoints on the west face of the Dandenongs, or enjoy the view from Woolrich lookout towards the great dividing range.

Special Conditions for this event

Car Parking Limitations
We have limited car parking at the hash hose location.  If each team plans to arrive in one car we'll be able to accommodate all the teams we expect.  If entry numbers exceed expectation on one or both days we will be forced to close entries early therefore we are appealing to you to plan car pool with your team when planning your team and if need be, leave a car nearby at Mt Everlyn to drive in the last few kilometres in one car.  

No post even Catering
No post event catering will be included for this Rogaine.   We do plan hot and cold water, tea, coffee and Milo so bring a cup, chair and your own snacks.   We did not have a volunteer catering manager sufficiently early and there are limitations on our set up that makes it simpler to omit catering.   Cafe's on course to get food and a short drive home for Melbournians.

No off Track Travel
Competitors will only be allowed on the mapped tracks and mapped open spaces, similar to a metrogaine, but in the bush.  This is an important permit requirement you need to adhere to.
