Belair National Park
Organiser: SA Rogaining Association
Rogaining is an Australian invention which has evolved into an international sport since its beginnings in the 1970s. Teams of no more than five use pre-marked maps and a compass to find as many check-points (controls) as possible in a given time period. In 12 hour and 24 hour events, night navigation is an option, as is camping overnight. They are a great way to walk through and enjoy some of South Australia’s most scenic terrain.
The SA Rogaining Association (SARA) is holding a four hour rogaine on Saturday 19 March, which is suitable for all levels of fitness and navigation skill. This is not an AUMC event – for more information and to register, head over to the SARA web site. If it sounds like you’re thing but you need a team, let us know.
Come and explore SA oldest and Australia’s second oldest National Park. beautiful Belair, and it’s surrounds: including Brown Hill Creek, Upper Sturt, and south to the edge of historic Coromandel Valley. Enjoy grey box woodland, patches of stringy bark forest, dry waterfalls and abundant wildlife.
The setters have encountered kangaroos, various birds, echidnas, koalas, emus, goats and even a deer or two. Learn some local history, practice contour reading, test your fitness or enjoy a pleasant walk with stops for coffee and playgrounds.
Climb some hills for sea views or stick to the creek lines. The dilemma will be which bits to leave out!
Afterwards enjoy pizza and fresh fruit with the family and team mates at the Hash House based at Hawthorndene Primary School.
