Permanent course map & instructions

The Victorian Rogaining Association (VRA) has established a permanent rogaining course north of Melbourne near Chewton.

Why? The permanent course supports navigation training for anyone at anytime. We encourage you to go and try it.

Getting to the course – Directions to the course are on the map. You may commence your use of the course at any part of the map. Some tracks are 4×4 only and may be impassable after wet weather.

What to bring? – Compass, whistle, first aid kit, which should include a linear bandage, head torch and mobile phone. Wear and take with you clothing and wet weather gear appropriate for all possible conditions. Let a responsible person know when and where you are going

Checkpoints – Checkpoints are generally galvanised metal posts painted red and white. Some missing posts are noted on the map. A number, which corresponds to the number on the map, is attached to the post. Please report any missing posts to the VRA:

Enjoy the course and tell others about it.

Risk – The VRA takes no responsibility for any person using the permanent course. Care should be taken at all times when using the course.

Map – Some areas on the map are out of bounds. They are marked in pink. Please do not walk in these areas.
