Thank you Neil, Rob, Ian & Nat for volunteering to Organise and Set this event.

Location

In the Strathbogie Ranges area between Yea and Benalla.   

 

Course

Starting from Farm Hash House and including plenty of open farmland Rogaining this is you first chance since 2012 to experience a mostly farmland Rogaine.  With this comes the need to understand farm rules and the reason why these are so important.  To do this we have a series of stories to explain a farmer Fred's needs.   Important rules to understand relate to:

Gates - Leave all gates as you find them  Why

Fences - How to best cross a fence

Lambs - Stay well away  Why

Cattle - Keep you distance  Why

Crops - Do not cross them  Why

Vines - Do not go near them  Why

 

Biosecurity in Rogaining

As Rogainers and outdoor people we visit different forests and farmland.  It is important we understand the need for Biosecurity and what action we need to take to mitigate the risk of spreading weeds or disease. Please read our Biosecurity in Rogaining information.

 

VRA Bus

Take the VRA Bus and avoid the risk if driving home.  Planned to depart from Southern Cross Station on Saturday morning at 7:30am (Or later by agreement) and depart the Hash House between 1 and 1:30 Sunday to return to Southern Cross Station.   Maps are issued on the bus at 9 am so no need to be concerned with not arriving by 9am to get maximum planning time.   The cost is heavily subsidized at $25 return or one way.

Accommodation

Bush camping is expected to be available at the Hash House site from Friday evening to late Sunday afternoon but to be confirmed.

Why not treat yourself to an extra day away.

There is a small school camp next to the 43VRC course which is just out of Strathbogie town. It sleeps 36, and in each room are a pair
of bunk beds, the kitchen is fully equipped so only food needs to be
bought along. Cost $20 per head a night, so if you are interested contact Roz on 0357908679. At the moment it is available on Friday before the rogaine, on Saturday potentially for 6-hour participants, and on Sunday night if you don't want to drive back to Melbourne. There are some magnificent attractions around Strathbogie whether you want to drive or walk (Seven Creeks gorge, Golden Mountain lookout, Tallangallook mining centre, Lima Falls, Polly McQuinn's reservoir, Mt Wombat lookout, Gooram Falls, granite boulders that you will die for, Crystal King quartz mine, and 75 cm leaves that might be the longest eucalypt leaves in Victoria).
