Next event – ‘Looking for Cataracts’ 24hr / Roving 15hr Rogaine – 29 & 30 Oct
It’s less than two weeks until the ‘Looking for Cataracts’ QLD Rogaining Championship 24hr / roving 15hr event on the last weekend in October!
The event is based in the historical gold mining areas centred around the Cataract River, and the event organisers have uncovered some interesting history on the area.
IMPORTANT: – Whilst we may have sneaked just south of the Border into NSW, us Queenslanders don’t understand daylight saving, therefore the entire weekend will be run on Queensland time (AEST).
NSW rogainers are most welcome to join us – and you even get an extra hour to sleep-in.
Map handout 09:00 Saturday morning (QLD time, AEST), see you there!

Have you organised a rogaine, set a course, created an event map or hung rogaine flags before?
Volunteering at rogaine events is one of the best ways to improve your rogaining skills, and is a great way to give back to your navigation sports community.
Our events can’t happen without your support, and we are seeking volunteers so that we can bring a full calendar of events to you in 2023.
If you are interested in volunteering, please get in touch with us at:

Urban Rogue – 25 Nov – entries open
The 10th edition of the Urban Rogue is on in just over a month, so get your team together to explore the Friday night lights of Brisbane city!
The word on the street is that there has been a little shake up of the map for this year’s race. Entries are open, so come be part of the last (and one of the largest) rogaines of the year.
Tasmanian Rogaining Championships – 5 & 6 Nov
Now that the Australasian Rogaining Championships are over (and what a terrific event!), Rogaining Tasmania would love to have some Qld rogainers at the Tasmanian Rogaining Championships next full moon in early November. Come for the rogaine, stay a little longer for the oysters and bushwalks.
