Harry Potter is not the only one with a chamber of secrets. Secrets of the Southern Tabletop is a BUSH ROGAINE set in the beautiful southern section of Litchfield National Park, in a mysterious, rarely explored area, accessible by permit only.

Teams of two to five rogaining wizards will travel entirely on foot (leave your broomsticks at home please), navigating with the aid of a topographic map and handheld compass. Sorcery and GPS devices strictly forbidden! Teams will select their own order of visiting checkpoints, in varied terrain. The bush rogaine includes both day and night navigation. Teams can return to the Hash House for rest, food, socialising and spell casting as often as they wish. The objective of the rogaine is to amass the highest score by finding checkpoints in the bush within a set time limit. (Sounds much easier than a game of Quidditch)!

The Hash House for the Secrets of the Southern Tabletop rogaine is located near to the southern-most boundary of Litchfield National Park. Access is off the Daly River Road. You will need to allow around 2.5 hours to reach the Hash House from Darwin (approximately 180km). Apologies – the Hogwarts Express is not running at the moment.

Choose from two events:



Start at 1:00pm, finish by 10:00pm. It’s the total package. Beware though - by the end you may feel as if the Petrificus Totalus spell has been cast over you…



Spend a maximum of 5 hours on the course, any time within the 1:00pm to 10:00pm window. Can you overcome the jinx of the Locomotor Wibbly?


MAPS OUT from 11:00am. With no available places in the Gryffindor dormitory, there is free overnight bush camping on site instead. (BYO camping gear). DINNER and BREAKFAST are provided. (BYO potions)!
