Volunteer Roles

This event is run entirely by volunteers, and entries will not open until the organiser is satisfied that we have enough helpers. As a general rule, if you’ve done more than five events without giving up the chance to compete and volunteering, it’s time to put up your hand. Or perhaps you have some family members who can help out, while you compete? This table shows the roles we need help with and the kind volunteers who have already put up their hands. If you can help out, or have family members who can, please email You could earn a Volunteer Reward, and some roles will still allow you to compete in the event.

The 2021 Rogaining Queensland season opener!

The Noosa Paddlegaine will once again be making use of the stunning coastal regions of the great south-east.  A race against the clock, spend up to 4 hours paddling through coastal areas (with just enough trekking or running to stretch your legs!), all the while hunting down checkpoints.

Get your entry in early as the event is strictly limited to 52 teams of 2, and this event sold out in prior years!

What? A race where teams of 2 compete to collect as many check points as possible in up to 4 hours while kayaking, navigating with map and compass.  The beauty of the rogaine format is you can choose to spend as much time on the course as you wish (up to 4 hours) –15 minutes or 4 hours, it is up to you!

When?  Saturday 27 February, 2021.

Where?  Noosa/Tewantin. Detailed directions will be emailed to you in the week before the event.
