postheadericon Arboretum 6hr Rogaine - 8 June 2024

A leisurely 2hour drive SSE of the city with a bakery bash at Bannister or the Miami Bakery will place you in the bush for the Winter 6 hour ( 12-6pm ) Arboretum Rogaine. 

This event will have both a family friendly set of close-by Controls and a flip side of sinew stretching, hard gained points for the more committed. No ticks and minimal prickle bushes were encountered during the setting so far, which should allow for concentration on a quirky local information quiz for a separate award. 

Camping in the rogaine area is not available but with a finish and BBQ at 6pm everyone should get home at a reasonable hour.

Entries will close Sunday midnight 2 June

postheadericon Volunteering:- your association needs you!

Volunteering is part and parcel of the culture of rogaining in WA. Unlike many other states, the WA rogaining association has been able to keep prices low and event quality high by the many members who every so often kindly forego an event to help out with administration, hash house, setting, vetting, first aid, or truck driving duties.

People step forward for the event roles usually in the last few weeks leading up to the event which is alway very much appreciated.

The Mysterious Traveller Rogaine


The 2024 Australasian Rogaine Championships will be hosted in WA on the weekend of 7th and 8th September 2024.


Where is the Mysterious Traveller?  A mask, an old logging village, a Melburnian forester, and ochre springs.  We may need to navigate complex river valleys (150m a.s.l. to 300m a.s.l.).  There may be a few pines, but we are mostly in stunning Jarrah - Marri - Blackbutt forest.  We leave the open Nannup farmlands of 2016 far behind. We have a very easy trip here - less than 3hrs southish of Perth and less than 1hr Bunbury.  For all travellers, far, near, mysterious or not, the Event Bus will take you on a magical tour from the airport to the event via a replenishing town.  The Setting and Vetting team look forward to showing you some topographical mysteries!


February update - a revision to the location - now 3hrs south of Perth. 


Student team sponsorships are available via the Nigel Aylott Memorial Sports Foundation, with details below.

postheadericon What is Rogaining?

Rogaining is the sport of long distance cross-country navigation in which teams of two to five members visit as many checkpoints as possible in twenty-four hours. Teams travel entirely on foot, navigating by map and compass between checkpoints in terrain that varies from open farmland to hilly forest. A central base camp provides hot meals throughout the event and teams may return at any time to eat, rest or sleep. Teams travel at their own pace and anyone from children to grandparents can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from cross-country navigation at their own level of competition and comfort.
