Rogaining Tasmania is excited to announce that the venue for the 2019 Australasian Rogaining Championships is St Helens, Tasmania. The event will be held on the weekend of 9 – 10 November, 2019. This fantastic rogaining area has terrain ranging from steep areas with extensive granite outcropping to flatter, more subtle terrain that was historically utilised for tin mining. The map includes the sleepy coastal township of Binalong Bay and the world famous “Bay of Fires” area, a mecca for travellers who love the outdoors.
St Helens is on Tasmania’s north east coast approximately 3.5 hours drive from Hobart and 2.5 hours drive from Launceston. Both these cities have domestic airports. St Helens is a fully serviced town with cafes, restaurants, banks, supermarkets etc. The organisers will be providing bus transport from Launceston to cater for the event but why not stay for a longer break and enjoy Tasmania. At this time of year car hire and accommodation can be readily booked in advance. For information on tourist destinations and self drive itineraries visit the Discover Tasmania website.
