Next Event – Buarabarama 6/12hr Rogaine – 26 June
It is only two weeks until our next event! The course setters have been busy hanging flags and can report that those who come along to the Buarabarama rogaine on 26 June are in for a real treat!
Never before explored by rogainers, the area is a mixture of open cattle country, forested areas with complex spur-gully features, lots of rocky watercourses and a beautiful flat Hash House site with flowing creek!

Entries Open – Cataract River 15/24hr Rogaine – 24-25 July
Join us for the highlight of the SEQ rogaining calendar, the annual 15/24hr event! This year we will duck across the border into NSW to the Boorook area near Tenterfield. The course covers changing landscapes from flowing rivers, waterfalls through tall gorges, open grazing land and rocky outcrops.
As always in rogaining, you can be as competitive or as casual as you like. You decide whether to stay out all night or return to the Hash for a hearty feed and a snooze by the most awesome campfire. Novices are always welcome!
We are seeking volunteers to assist with hanging flags for the event during the first two weeks of July. If you are able to assist, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
