Saturday 17 August – come along for a four-hour foot or bike rogaine set exclusively on the Derwent’s sunny Eastern Shore and up into the Meehan Range. With the Hash House in the Sea Scout Hall behind the Clarence Aquatic centre the event will allow you to explore the delightful beaches and suburbs of the sunnier side of the river and the trails of its ranges and parks.

Go hard and grab some vertical or go soft and grab something chilled (or hot) as you pass through the Bellerive waterfront. The choice – as they say in real estate land – is yours. Whichever path you choose you will be sure to find a scenic lookout or two from which to look across the Derwent at the large and snowy (well, maybe) kunanyi. You may very well find yourselves travelling in the footsteps of Darwin or sitting on a cannon in an historic Napoleonic-era fort. You will undoubtedly view plants described in Sir Joseph Hooker’s Flora Tasmaniae (1855).

Your domain will stretch from Howrah in the south to Lindisfarne in the north and west. New mapping will allow you to explore the tracks and trails of the Meehan Range as far to the east as Stringy Bark Gully. What will you discover?
