This year’s Spring rogaine/NSW champs will be held in the Big Yango precinct of Yengo NP, less than 3-hour drive north of Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is an area rich in Aboriginal and European history that was never used for a rogaine although NavShield was based there in 2015 and, judging by the remains of flags that the course setters found on the course, another bush navigation event took place there some years earlier.

Justine Course Setting

The HH is near the center of a course that promises grassy valleys and beautiful creeks and gullies whilst most spurs although steep in places are not too high with understorey vegetation ranging from inexistent to scrubby. Thankfully the course setters, especially the 6-year-old setter, are endeavoring to make you avoid the worst scrub.

There is something for everyone on the course: with a good trail network, open valleys and the lowest and more open ridges being close to the HH, families and novices will have plenty to play with whilst more competitive rogainers will be able to challenge themselves finding ways over and across as many hills as possible.

Some expansive views can be had for the more energetic from the higher parts of the course and the many rocky outcrops provide lookouts for the others.

The course setters have found Aboriginal sharpening grooves at two sites as well as a cave with hand stencils.

Wildlife includes the usual lyrebirds, black cockatoos, crimson rosellas, wallabies and kangaroos but imposing wallaroos, wombats, spotted pardalottes, bush turkeys and many more have also been seen.

The map is beautifully detailed with 10m contour lines although the course setter is happy to provide a copy of the old topographic map with 20m contours and no cliff or control marked on it for anyone who enjoy this type of exercise!

You can choose from an 8-hour event or a 24-hour event. With its central location, the HH is ideally placed for teams willing to do a loop on Saturday afternoon, return to the HH for a feed and a sleep and then go out again on Sunday to do another loop (Hint - Step up and enter the 24 hr event!).


Camping will be available at the HH on Friday and Saturday nights and both events will start at 12 noon on the Saturday. Entry includes camping costs and food at the Hash House from Saturday 6pm through to lunch on Sunday.

Kids Rogaine?

There will be a kid’s minigaine around the HH on Sunday morning, for those camping after the 8 hour. No need to register prior (free) - maps will be available from the rego desk.

Why the Step Up Rogaine?

Mount Yengo is a distinct feature on our map, a table-top mountain, remnant of an ancient volcano that rises 300 metres above a plateau. But don’t fear, Vivien hasn’t set a control at the top.

Grinding Marks

Mt. Yengo is recognised as an Aboriginal Place. It is a natural feature of spiritual and ceremonial importance. Baiame, a creational ancestral hero stepped down from the sky, and jumped back up to the spirit world after he had created all of the mountains, lakes, rivers and caves in the area. Baiame flattened the top of Mount Yengo when he jumped skyward and the flat top is still visible today

And, that’s why we have named this Rogaine the Step-Up Rogaine…. Plus, we’d love to entice you to try a 24 hour rogaine.

Yengo National Park has thousands of Aboriginal sites, many of them rock carvings. We are sure you’ll spot a few sites such as these grinding grooves out on course.
