This year’s Spring Rogaine is being held north of the historical town of Peterborough,
about 3 easy driving hours north of Adelaide. The Rogaine is on private land with the
kind permission of the landowners. Predominately open semi-arid sheep grazing land
and bush, there are loads of interesting features including hills (not too high/steep!), open
valleys, old mines, tracks and dry creek beds. The area has many stands of native pine
and mallee. Also open areas, some cropping and an abundance of wildlife including
kangaroos, emus and eagles. Like many places in the mid-north the town of Erskine was
surveyed in the 1880’s but never developed. People did however establish farms at this
time and the area is littered with these failed enterprises. The Hash House is in the centre
of the course and these and other interesting features can be found close by.
Join us for the Erskine Valley Escapade! The area has never been rogained before and
will be great for people with all levels of rogaining experience. Why not come along and
try bush rogaining! Camping will be available from Friday evening through to Sunday
morning and the event catering will be provided by the Peterborough community. Not to
