Houses, History and (H)art

This is a Rogaine with a difference … its aim is for participants to get outdoors and have fun while learning more about the houses, history and art around historic Battery Point and Upper Sandy Bay area.  The event  has a saturation of controls, a variety of route choice, and the time to stop and relax.

The course area includes the lower part of the University of Tasmania, and is then approximately bordered by Churchill Avenue, View Street, Proctors Road, Davey Street, Salamanca Place and the River Derwent.

The start and finish are on Marieville Esplanade in Sandy Bay near the Short Beach playground - opposite Mardsen St.

HOUSES will teach you more about Hobart Town through finding out the names people gave their houses, the dates they were built, and in some cases discover the name of a noted occupant.

HISTORY provides clues about the developments, lives and goings on in nineteenth century Hobart Town.

(H)ART is a more modern aspect which takes you to the many mainly sculptural works that are on public view across the course area.

Bangor 3 - Return of the Oysters

December 1st and 2nd sees us heading back to the future with another gallop around Bangor on the north of the Forestier Peninsula. There will be both a 24 hour and a roving 15 hour event.

Possibly the only trilogy (previous events in 1998 & 2003) to run longer than the Lord of Rings. Government permissions allowing access, we’ll hold both a 24 hour and a roving 15 hour event. The course will see you taking in scenic soaring coastal cliffs, beaches, historic monuments, broad acre paddocks, the occasional burnt out Hyundai Excel, and if you get your timing right, a cheeky stop for oysters and coffee.
