Peter Mattner, Ron Oliver, Paul (Wil) Williams and Dave Symons have found a location close to Perth in the Avon Valley National Park for the Spring 24-hour. The map promises a few hills, plenty of bush land... and very little parrot bush.

Hash House will be about 1 hour's drive from Perth. It is in a National Park, and the committee has decided that entries fees will be standard, despite additional costs for park entry and camping fees.

30 July - updated Camping info.

Map and Course Notes

  • The site is entirely bush comprising mainly wandoo, jarrah and marri forest. The terrain is quite varied. There are areas where it is relatively flat and open and others where the bush is quite thick. Being the Avon Valley, there are some steep sections for those who enjoy a challenge but there are many areas of rolling bushland for families and novices. Elsewhere, there are plentiful tracks, hills, gullies, knolls and watercourses.
  • Map 1:50k, A3 size (until further notice).

Camping

  • The hash house is set in a flat open area and has easy access to all vehicles including caravans and camper trailers.
  • Given we are in a National Park, WARA will be charged fees for camping. WARA will cover these costs with event entry offset by profits from other events.
  • Whilst camping is permitted for Friday and Saturday nights, we would prefer people to camp on Saturday night only to keep WARA’s costs to a minimum.
