Flyer Coolmarley Classic 3 1


This event is a CLASSIC BUSH ROGAINE set in the historic Coomalie Region, about an hour south of Darwin. The objective of the rogaine is to amass the highest score by finding checkpoints in the bush within a set time limit.

Teams of two to five members travel entirely on foot, navigating with the aid of a topographic map and handheld compass. Teams select their own order of visiting checkpoints, in varied terrain. The classic rogaine includes both day and night navigation. Teams can return to the Hash House for rest, food and socialising as often as they wish.

The Hash House for the Coolmarley Classic Bush Rogaine is located at Coomalie Creek Farm (along the road to the Coomalie Landing Ground, just south of the Bachelor turn-off).

Choose from two events:


The north and south and east and west, so you better look your best! Tuck those dreadlocks into your Rasta cap and get set for the long haul, because this event runs midday to midnight. Everything’s gonna be all right, mon!


Rack up a maximum of 6 hours on the course, anytime within the midday to midnight window. Then chill out, enjoy some red, red wine, and don’t worry ‘bout a thing! Keep calm and love rogaine, mon!

Hunger Moon Monsoon Metrogaine


Saturday, 27 February 2021

A Hunger Moon Monsoon Metrogaine

This event is a metrogaine and uses the principles of rogaining in an urban setting. Teamwork, strategic planning and map reading are features of the sport.


Teams of 2 to 5 people choose which map checkpoints to visit within a designated time limit, with the intent of maximizing their score. It can be a wild walk, fun run or radical ride as teams plan their strategy and move through the course using the map provided. Great exercise for both the body and the mind!

A Hunger Moon Monsoon Metrogaine starts and finishes at the Knuckey Lagoon Scout Hall on Brandt Road. The event covers bush and urban environments around Karama, Holmes Jungle and surrounds, Micket Creek, Thorak, Pinelands, Berrimah, and of course Knuckey Lagoon.

Course setters have attempted to keep everyone on solid ground throughout their chosen event, using as much of the natural bush available whilst staying out of the mud wherever possible. Route choice will be the key to being efficient with time and aggregation of points. Control points will be a mix of multiple-choice questions and traditional hanging controls.


THREE events are on offer:

EVENT (1) Walk or Run - 6 Hour HIKER
Get plucky with Knuckey because there are no shortcuts to any place worth going!
Maps out at 13:00. Teams will start at 15:00 and must be back by 21:00.
EVENT (2) Walk or Run - 3 Hour GAITER
A great event for families, or those preferring a more recreational rogaine.
Maps out at 13:30. Teams will start at 15:30 and must be back by 18:30.
EVENT (3) Cycle - 4 Hour BIKER
For all the cyclopaths out there! Put your peloton together and grease up your cranks.
Maps out at 14:30. Teams will start at 16:30 and must be back by 20:30.


Our wonderful volunteer catering team will have a BBQ dinner, cold drinks, fruit and cake available at the Hash House (Knuckey Lagoon Scout Hall) between 18:00 and 21:30.
