Australasian Rogaining Champs 7 – 8 September 2024

Into the Jarrah forest — Wild Magazine

The next Australasian Rogaining Championships will be held in Western Australia over the weekend of 7th and 8th September 2024.

There has been a revision to the location. It will now be held in a location 3hrs south of Perth and less than 1hr from Bunbury. The closest town is Donnybrook. If camping, bring your own drinking water.

The course has a few pines, but is mostly stunning Jarrah – Marri – Blackbutt forest. The setting and vetting team look forward to showing you some complex river valleys 150 – 300m a.s.l., with some topographical mysteries!

Bus transport will be available, departing Perth Airport at approx 2:30pm on the Friday before the event and returning approx 6pm on the Sunday. The bus will stop at a supermarket and a restaurant for dinner on the way. As an alternative, Jetstar has just started direct flights with good deals to Busselton/Margaret River airport. That’s nearer the rogaine but would need a hire car.

There will be a partner finding service, so if you don’t have a team, contact the Rogaine Partner Matching Service pennyd@westnet.com.au.Any further questions about the event can be directed to Event Info eventinfo@wa.rogaine.asn.au but much more will be known soon. We will update this announcement as things progress, but for the very latest you can visit the event website here.

Book early for best deals on flights and as well as the rogaine take a week or two to explore Dunsborough, Margaret River, Augusta, Pemberton, Denmark, Albany, Stirling Ranges and the Porongurup National Park.
