The 24-hour State Championship or associated 12-hour roving bush event will showcase a classic area of the Flinders Ranges. If night navigation is your thing, then the numerous rolling hills, wide creek beds and open plains under the full moon will be a highlight. Also, the challenging spur/gully terrain will test your navigation skills and prepare those competing in the Australian Championships later in the year.

There are many close controls for novices and family groups venturing out into their first bush rogaine, lots of mid-distance controls for those who want to venture further, and the usual far, flung controls for the die-hards who want the full 24-hour experience and chance of visiting every control site.

The terrain is fast, with low-medium sized hills and sparse scrub, with some ankle high spinifex, picturesque river gums and areas of native pine.

The Hash House (start/finish, admin and camping area) is located at the “Three Creeks” shearing shed, with a flat, open, prickle free camping area, easily accessed by 2-wheel drives. If you’re not set up for camping, then there are accommodation options in Cradock and at Holowiliena station– only about 25 to 30 minutes away. Hot food on Saturday night around the campfire, Sunday brekkie and Sunday lunch are all included in the entrance fee.

Three Creeks Station is approximately 350kms from Gepps Cross so allow 4.5 to 5.5 hours travel time to get to the event site. The event site will be open from Friday 19 July through to Monday 22 July. If using a direction search engine such as Google Maps then put your destination as 2162 Yednalue road Cradock SA (not “Three Creeks” station).
