postheadericon Double Dam Spring 24 Hour - 13-14 August 2022

This Rogaine is mostly set in natural bushland with two beautiful fresh water reservoirs. It's an iconic location and part of it has been used previously for some iconic rogaines and some is new. It is south of Perth but north of Bunbury, and you'll feel a million miles away from the city when you get there. Sweeping views of the coastal plains across adjoining farmland can be seen from westernmost controls and tracks on the edge of the Darling Scarp. Making good use of the labyrinth of tracks should help navigation around the multitude of lush flowing creeks. Adventurous types may also enjoy cutting corners and burrowing through the aptly named Waterbush (or aquifolium), which dominates the thick forest understory with a range of different types of trees. Controlled burns have opened up the forest floor in a few places, which have been taken advantage of in setting the controls. There is no farmland on the course, but there are areas of pine plantation and the cleared region around the dam shores as well as native vegetation. You will be able to plot your own paths with as many ups and downs as you feel like between the flatter areas to the east and the steeper edges of the scarp. The controls have been arranged to provide plenty of route options for every type of participant, and a serious challenge for the most competitive wanting to get 'em all. There is even a café on the course not far from the hash house to provide some tasty treats and possibly also bag some easy points. Whatever you fancy doing, this rogaine should provide ample opportunity to design your own perfect there-and-back-again weekend adventure..

Adult $60, Junior (10 - 18) $30, Child (under 10) Free
